Amelia Park Ice Arena is a sports complex and memorial garden, financed by the late philanthropist Albert F. Ferst. Throughout their lifetimes, the Fersts made it a priority to support family, community and youth programs.
The Albert & Amelia Ferst Operating Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit entity was formed in 1998, with the expressed purpose of building this recreational facility. In 2000, Amelia Park Ice Arena became a reality but unfortunately, Millie passed away before it was completed. The Family responded by developing and building a beautiful 1.3 acre memorial garden next to the rink in her name. This garden has become a favorite spot for people throughout the region to come and enjoy free concerts, community activities and weddings.
The main building is a 47,000 square foot facility that includes an NHL sized ice rink with seating for 600; a figure skating lounge; three party rooms; a skate rental and sharpening area; four locker rooms and a food concession area. A 65′ x 170′ outside inline skating rink is located next to the main building.
