City Of Troy Ice Rink  & Pavilion Project

Ice Rink & Pavilion Project Overview

Over the past decade, the City of Troy has heard from the community on the need for public gathering spaces. Through community engagement efforts done by City staff, it was recognized that the Civic Center Campus was the prime location for this desired space. 

How did the City engage the community?

The City conducted a variety of outreach. One approach included releasing a resident survey which resulted in a high percentage of respondents indicating a desire for additional winter recreation opportunities specifically an ice-skating facility. City administration responded to this desire by incorporating an ice-skating facility into the pavilion design.

Additionally, City staff in partnership with the Troy Parks and Recreation Advisory Board held focus group discussions to look at what would also encompass this public gathering space. Through those conversations with the advisory board, specifically with the Green Space Sub-Committee, the group highlighted, “As with all of our parks, the development of the Troy Civic Center must be considered as an area for community interaction that embraces the natural landscape that is vital to preserving the ecosystem.” 

The Troy Community Foundation also recognized this opportunity and provided renderings to engage the community in a large-scale project that they intended to participate in. 

Through this engagement process, City staff worked with OHM Advisors, an engineering consulting firm to work on a proposed development that encompassed the needs and wants of the community based on the community feedback. 

Furthermore, the idea and renderings were used in the successful capture of a Community Project Funding grant of $1.5 million.

Ice Rink and Pavilion Renderings
In the drop-downs below you will find renderings and an interactive virtual walkthrough for the year-round Ice Rink and Pavilion. As construction continues, we are planning programming and will have announcements later this year. Check back for updates. 

The project has been designed based on stakeholder input. Construction began in the Spring of 2023. Tentative pavilion opening date is May 2024, with the exact date to be determined.
As of 1/25/24, the current timeline for construction indicates that we will not be opening the ice amenity for use this season. This is due to construction delays such as weather and delays in materials. Although we were hoping to open this amenity for a soft opening at this time of year, we are excited to plan a grand opening for the end of the year. Stay tuned at rec.troymi.gov/icerink and in future Recreation Guides for updates. Project updates are posted in the last drop-down below.
