Hamilton Community Center & Ice Arena

Hamilton Community Center & Ice Arena is a year-round facility with all the great things you would expect from a Columbus Parks and Recreation Department facility. Hamilton Center was built in 1958 by the Hamilton Cosco Foundation and was donated to the Parks and Recreation Department.  This facility was designed by renowned architect Harry Weese and is one of the many buildings on the Columbus architectural tour. In 1976, the arena was enclosed to accommodate year round programming development. In 2015, major renovations to update and restore some of Hamilton’s original components were completed. This project was completed as a result of public tax payer funds and a major private fundraiser campaign through the Friends of Hamilton, which raised $1.3 million in donations for a total renovation budget of approximately $2.8 million. As a result of this campaign and the renovations made to Hamilton, the arena flourished into a Community Center and became an even more treasured asset to the community.
