This 2,600-seat ice skating rink is located on Penn’s Campus adjacent to the east entrance of Penn Park. Made primarily of poured concrete, the 60,000 square foot arena is supported by four twenty-two foot concrete columns around the exterior of the facility. The lower concourse includes eight locker rooms, vending area, the Quaker Room overlooking the ice surface, the Independence Room, and skate rental room. The ice surface itself is 85'x 200' with rounded corners and totals 16,330 square feet. The upper concourse includes two restrooms and two concession stands and two entrances on Walnut Street, which completes the building's professional feel. Designed by Robert C. McMillian Associates, this building was a benchmark in ice rink design.
