Arenas & Ice Rink

The Kent Freeman Arena, located at the fairgrounds in Detroit Lakes, was originally built in 1960. It features an 85' x 200' sheet of ice along with the seating capacity to hold 1,350 people. In 1999 a major expansion project was completed which greatly enhanced the facility. This expansion included an additional 85' x 195' sheet of ice along with 8 new locker rooms, restroom facilities, and a commons area which houses the new concession stand. The original arena, known as arena #1 is the main rink used for games and tournaments. Arena #2 is mainly used for practice and youth hockey games.
Events that take place at the Sports Arena when the ice is not in include circuses, auction sales, Becker County Fair, festivals and community functions. Public wi-fi is available at the arena.
