Glenview Community Ice Center unveils $30M renovation at grand opening

The grand opening for the 86,000-square-foot, $30.1 million renovated Glenview Community Ice Center that was 15 months in the making took place Saturday.

The center at 1851 Landwehr Road nearly doubles the size of the original 45,000-square-foot facility, which was built in 1972 and underwent a smaller-scale renovation in 2008.

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

 

A second 200-foot by 85-foot NHL-sized rink with seating for 500 spectators was added to the extensively renovated facility. The original NHL-sized rink, which now seats 150 spectators, and a 90-foot by 60-foot studio rink were retained and were also part of the renovation.

“It’s an extremely exciting day,” said Michael McCarthy, executive director of the Glenview Park district. “So many people worked so hard to pull this construction project off under extreme circumstances.

“And now it’s a reality.”

Pine considering assessing need for improvements at community center

Pine officials are considering hiring a firm to conduct an in-depth review of the community center’s past to see if changes may be needed for the future.

The township has received proposals from two companies to conduct an assessment of the facility, which celebrated its 10th anniversary last year.

Jan Kowalski, the township’s director of finance, said such an assessment could help guide the township as it tries to adjust programs so they can be conducted while adhering to safety guidelines needed to slow the spread of coronavirus.

The review also could help the township adjust its programs, and even the physical space, to better serve the community.
