The City of Wentzville is pleased to announce the purchase of the Lindenwood Ice Arena. During its meeting on Wednesday, June 12, the Wentzville Board of Aldermen finalized plans for the purchase of the Lindenwood Ice Arena (910 Main Plaza Dr.). The arena was purchased for $2 million, which will be paid in interest-free annual increments of $100,000 – over the next 20 years.
“As the fastest-growing city in Missouri, Wentzville is continually looking for ways to expand the parks and recreation amenities in our community. We were approached by Lindenwood to see if the City might have an interest in the facility. The Board of Aldermen, City staff and I took a close look at the recreational needs of our growing community. With the addition of the Wentzville Ice Arena, which currently houses two full-size ice rinks, we are able to provide additional services to our residents and beyond,” said Mayor Nick Guccione.
This facility is currently home to the Lindenwood Lions. In 2010, this 70,000 square-foot sports complex was renovated, with upgrades to the locker rooms and scoreboards. It features two NHL-size ice rinks, heated fan bleachers and a food service center.
This new recreational facility provides ample opportunities for hosting additional Wentzville Parks and Recreation programs and special events including public skating, hockey tournaments, learn-to-skate programs and ice rentals. The addition of recreational facilities like this provides the residents of Wentzville with opportunities to interact and connect as a community for years to come.
