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

History[edit | edit source]

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.[2]

In 2012, the Janesville Ice Arena completed a major upgrade, which included new under floor piping, a concrete floor, a domestic hot water boiler, high efficiency lighting, updated locker rooms and a building addition that included a snow melt pit, a zamboni garage, and a geothermal heat pump.[3]
