Willie O'Ree Place is a fully accessible, state-of-the art facility that features two NHL-sized ice surfaces, 11 large dressing rooms, offices for officials and event organizers, an indoor walking track, three rooms for community use, canteens operated by the Nashwaaksis Y's Men Club, the Fredericton YMCA Northside Wellness Centre, and a seasonal youth centre and indoor skateboard park. In addition, this facility houses Fredericton's Celebration of Sport.

The complex was officially named Willie O'Ree Place in a public ceremony January 16, 2008 in honour of the former Fredericton man who became the first black person to play in the National Hockey League 50 years ago.
