The York Ice Arena opened in September of 2001. The Memorial Park Ice Rink had provided public skating, figure skating and hockey programs for the York community in the years before the new complex was built. As local and national interest in ice sports began to grow, the demand for ice time increased. York County also saw a mass expansion into high school hockey. The existing ice rink was incapable of handling the surge and it became apparent that a premier facility was on the horizon for York.
The York Ice Arena has two full sized NHL Rinks. A Hockey Pro Shop and and snack bar.
