Dakotah! Ice Center

We Put Family Fun on Ice

The popular Prior Lake ice arena features two NHL-sized rinks. The facility is home to several local amateur and adult hockey teams, hosting dozens of hockey tournaments every year.

In addition to hosting community ice events, Dakotah! Ice Center is a leader in environmental sustainability, with a large green roof, solar panels, skylights, and a compressor and heat exchange system that conserves energy. Dakotah! Ice Center is open to the public and available for open skate sessions, hockey and skating classes, and ice and conference room rentals.

Environmentally Friendly

The Dakotah! Ice Center was constructed in 2008 with a number of green building initiatives designed to make construction, operation, and maintenance as energy-efficient as possible. An innovative skylight system provides plenty of light by day, and the waste heat created by cooling the rink floor is captured and reused to heat the arena seats. The arena's benches are constructed from 100% recycled plastic lumber, and the parking lot pavers are made from recycled tires and plastic containers. The Dakotah! Ice Center also has a green roof covered with natural vegetation. This innovative roof insulates the facility, extends the life of the roof by protecting it from sun exposure, and reduces total storm water runoff from the building.


Events include public open skate sessions, learn-to-skate classes, adult open hockey, developmental hockey, and developmental freestyle sessions. Figure and hockey skate rentals are available in sizes from a toddler size 8 through an adult size 13.

Rent the Arena

The ice center is available for practices, camps, tournaments, and private event rentals, with rates dependent on the season and time of day. Dakotah! Ice Center also features a conference room that can accommodate up to 100 people.
