A proposal from a group of private investors to build an international standard ice rink and rock climbing facility in Marion has been endorsed by the City of Marion with the proposed agreements to go out for public consultation soon.
Ice Rinks Adelaide and the Pelligra Group want to build the $20 million venture on a 10,000sqm site at 262 Sturt Road that they plan to lease from Council for 42-years. The site is owned by Council and is classified as “Community Land” so the intention to lease and subsequent changes to the Community Land Management Plan will go out for public consultation before any formal deal is signed.
Once completed, the arena will boast an international standard ice rink with a seating capacity of up to 450 spectators.
The rink is expected to be the home of South Australia’s Australian Ice Hockey League team, Adelaide Adrenaline, possibly in time for the 2024 season.
The facility is also planned to have international competition rock climbing walls for Sport Climbing, recreational rock climbing and bouldering, themed rock climbing walls for children, a pro shop, kiosk, and children’s play café.
The proposal includes:
- An international standard ice rink (single sheet)
- 350-450 spectator capacity
- Pro shop
- Sport Climbing – international competition rock climbing walls
- Recreational rock climbing and bouldering
- Themed rock climbing walls for children
- Children’s play café
