Our new vision for a year-round recreation center

Conceptual roof design

The future vision of the Skatium is a year-round, multi-function open-air facility that will support recreational sports, concerts, markets, and a myriad of other activities based on community needs. 

The two most important improvements required to enable this are a refrigerated concrete surface and a roof. In winter, these two things alone will enable Skatium to remain open with skatable ice for up to five months. In other seasons, they will enable a multitude of other sports and events to be held, even in the rain.

The ultimate dream

A free resource for those in need 

Our dream would be to form an endowment fund that generates enough revenue to cover all annual operating costs.  Doing so would open activities to  more families in the Valley and enable us to truly make the SKATIUM a vital community resource for generations.  

Target Goal: $2,000,000
