Janesville Ice Arena is an ice arena and skating center owned by the city of Janesville, Wisconsin. It is home to high school and youth hockey programs and the Janesville Jets, a North American Hockey League team.

History[edit]

In preparation for the Janesville Jets, the rink underwent a renovation that included new locker rooms and improved public areas such as the ticket booths and concession stand.[3]

In 2012, the Janesville Ice Arena completed a major upgrade, which included new under floor piping, concrete floor, domestic hot water boiler, high efficiency lighting, updated lockers rooms and a building addition which includes a snow melt pit and zamboni garage. The city also installed a geothermal heat pump.[4]
