Mick George Ltd was associated with the Earthworks on the new Cambridge Ice Arena.
A 20 year wait to build a new ice rink on the edge of Cambridge is finally over. The scheme on the Newmarket Road, Park and Ride site owned by Marshall Group Properties, has been scheduled for completion in Autumn 2018.
Cambridge Ice Arena will be fitted with a full-size (56m x 26m), international-standard ice pad and will incorporate the latest technologies to ensure maximum operational efficiency. It also boasts a 340-seated area, as well as additional room for several-hundred more standing spectators, taking the total allocation past the 1,000 mark.
The venue will accommodate over 500 skaters, providing leisure and figure skating, ice hockey, speed skating (short circuit) and curling opportunities, as well as public ice sessions/discos, training and professional development. Four changing rooms, a café and multi-use entertainment/community area will also compliment the main provisions available.
The site for the Cambridge Ice Arena will put the ice rink on a gateway to the city and be an icon for Eastern Cambridge. Sitting just 3.1 miles from Cambridge’s Market Square, the venue is less than one mile from the new Cambridge railway station.
