Casper Ice Arena looking to possibly expand
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - In the city of Casper, one of the more popular venues for locals is the Casper Ice Arena. And there could possibly be some changes in it’s future. The Ice Arena is very popular among locals... Both for it’s public open skates, and for all of the hockey and figure skating competitions that take place there.
Casper City Council realizes the importance of the Ice Arena to the local community. That’s why they recently passed a decision for the construction of a second sheet of ice. As for where the funds for this additional rink will come from? Manager Chad Green says, “With private funding, the city of Casper is willing to contribute a few million dollars toward the project. But the lion’s share of the actual funding needs to come from private donors. And I believe Casper Hockey is leading that charge.”
If the Ice Arena is able to secure all of the additional funding, they hope to move forward with expansion plans later this year or early next year.
