Parade Ice Garden is an indoor rink located in Parade Park in Minneapolis. It offers year-round indoor ice skating.

History of Parade Ice Garden

Built in 1973, the Parade Ice Center was one of several important citywide facilities established or enhanced during the 1970s building boom. The construction of several suburban indoor artificial ice rinks had changed the sport of hockey in the metro area from an outdoor game to an indoor one, prompting the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board to investigate the possibilities for an indoor rink within the city. Initially three sites were outlined including locations in northeast, central and south Minneapolis.
