What a facility. If you like ice hockey or swimming. It's actually a warm rink and the concessions are excellent for a sports facility.

For a small town this facility is amazing. It has a pool that can host state level swim events. My son used to practice there most of the year. Huge skating rink and also a hockey rink makes it an amazing destination in town.

The recreation center has an olympic-size swim pool, large gymnasium and ice rink. Nothing fancy to boast about, but serves its purpose for swim meets.
