Pygmy Gardens (also known as University Arena) was an indoor ice hockey arena located on the campus of the University of Guelph (which was previously known as Ontario Agricultural College until 1964) in Guelph, Ontario.

The original rink dates back to 1914 and stood until 1920 when it collapsed.  The arena was rebuilt using the original girders for the building and the width of the building was narrowed by ten feet.  The arena was built as a co-op with shares being sold and when it way paid off around 1950.  The arena was home to the then Ontario Agricultural College Redmen and Redwomen until the school was renamed and then the Guelph Gryphons mens and Guelph Gryphons women's ice hockey teams.  The arena was used by the women's team until it closed in 1989.  The men's team had previously moved to Guelph Memorial Gardens and moved into the Gryphon Centre Arena along with the women's team.
