The City of Ames Parks & Rec Department and Iowa State University joined together to construct this new, state of the art indoor ice arena for the City of Ames and the Iowa State University Cyclones Hockey team. Located just west of its old location, the new ice arena was built to hold 900 spectators and includes a full sized ice rink. The front entry is open with split face block look to give the building character. The locker rooms are built into the area under the seating to take advantage of the space. Also, the equipment and building were built so as to allow for future expansion to the south if the need arises.
