New $7M Hockey Arena Possible in Grand Forks

GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - The facility would be located near Choice Health and Fitness that's being built right now on the land owned by the Park District.

GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - A $7 million hockey arena may be built in the next couple of years.

The facility would be located near Choice Health and Fitness that's being built right now on the land owned by the Park District.

The arena would have two rinks, seating for 500 people and provide a place for more tournaments and practice.

Park District officials say they are in the planning phases and that with more interest in skating, the need is there.

"The older folks that skated years ago, more and more demand from them to rent more ice so there's no question we do need to plan for a new indoor rink," Park District director John Staley said.

The Grand Forks Blue Line Club has already promised the Park District $2.5 million for a new arena.

The rest of the fundraising could take up to two years.
