Nelson Center

1601 North 5th Street

The Nelson Center contains two indoor ice rinks, six locker rooms, and two concession areas that are open to the public year-round. The Nelson Center houses the only two indoor ice rinks within a 60 mile radius and therefore serves as the home for most ice related programs, events and activities in the area. The Springfield Park District offers a variety of instructional classes and leagues designed to teach children and adults how to ice skate, figure skate, or play hockey. The Nelson Center also reserves weekly open skate time to allow the community to enjoy ice skating. Additionally, the Nelson Center is home to the Jr Blues hockey program and the Robert Morris College Hockey program, the Springfield Figure Skating Club, Springfield Youth Hockey Association, Lincoln Land High School Hockey and Sr. Hockey League.
