The Halletts recently joined Greenwood Mayor Mark W. Myers in announcing the Greenwood Iceplex, a 115,000-square-foot facility expected to be a regional destination for youth hockey and other ice sports, including figure and speed skating and curling.
Featuring two finished ice rinks, two turf fields (convertible to two additional rinks), a fitness/training facility, locker rooms and retail and concession space, the Iceplex will be constructed on 6 acres in Greenwood’s Freedom Park.
The park is also home to Freedom Springs, Greenwood’s aquatic center, which welcomed more than 150,000 visitors during its first two years of operation. Under proposed terms of the agreement, the Halletts will lease the land for $1 per month and invest approximately $20 million in the complex.
Jim Hallett says the facility continues his family’s mission to ensure hockey’s future in Indiana. “We’re approaching it from the ground up. Youth hockey provides the foundation, and it takes sustained financial investment and dedication to build and grow the sport at that level. It’s about creating an infrastructure for hockey’s long-term growth and popularity, and Greenwood is an ideal fit for this project.”
Myers praised the project as a milestone for the community. “This is a game-changer, both for Greenwood and hockey in the Hoosier state. The Halletts have clearly demonstrated their commitment, and we look forward to a long, successful partnership with Jim, Sean and the entire family.”
The Fuel, a minor league hockey team affiliated with the Chicago Blackhawks, will continue to call the Indiana Farmers Coliseum home.
