The Story

The Dartmouth Multi-Pad will be a four pad ice arena (three NHL size rinks and one Olympic size rink) approximately 138,000 sq.ft. in size. One of the NHL ice surfaces is a feature rink with seating to accommodate 300 spectators. The same rink will be equipped with a sound system for special events. There are a total of 22 locker rooms for the rinks plus another four locker rooms to support the existing exterior All-Weather Sports Fields. The facility will contain food and sports concessions as well as space for community and/or non-profit organizations. The facility will be integrated with the existing All-Weather Sports Fields to provide a campus feel for the complex.
