Additionally, this project seeks to elevate the architectural quality and design in the area as an example for subsequent developments. The Great Plains area is characterized exclusively by Industrial buildings to the North West and South juxtaposed by undeveloped green field sites to the East. This competitive tournament facility Features two multi-purpose rinks for ice sports such as hockey, sledge hockey, ringette and figure skating. An emphasis on spectator viewing will allow for fans and athletes to share in the same experience on and off the ice.
