The Bloomington Ice Garden ("BIG") is a year-round indoor ice skating facility with three rinks, one of them Olympic-sized, and seating for up to 2500 people. When the City of Bloomington closes outdoor ice rinks due to uncooperative weather, they recommend Bloomington Ice Garden as an ice skating alternative. Details are below, please visit the website for updated hours and schedules as we cannot guarantee them. BIG also hosts skating lessons and classes. Register through the city's recreation registration.
