The ice arena is seasonal. The Ice Arena closed March 21, 2021 for the season.
The John and Dede Howard Ice Arena was made possible by a generous donation from local residents John and Dede Howard. It has been a great resource to the City by providing fun, family-friendly recreation for the community. Some of the programs the John and Dede Howard Ice Arena hosts are open skating, club hockey, and also our Summer Recreation Program.
The John and Dede Howard Ice Arena is a partially enclosed, refrigerated NHL-sized (200' x 85') outdoor Arena. The Arena is open to the weather outside; however, it has a roof above it to help protect it from some of the weather's elements. The Arena is subject to weather. Weather may alter the printed schedule of ice times and also the opening and closing dates of the facility. Please either check the news feed of the website or contact the facility to inquire about weather-related closings.
