The Bismarck Park and Recreation District broke ground on an expansion to the existing Schaumberg Arena in Bismarck. The new complex will be known as the Capital Ice Complex.

The Bismarck Hockey Boosters, Bismarck Figure Skating Club, and Bismarck Parks and Recreation District all attended the groundbreaking event at Bismarck's Schaumberg Arena. The new indoor sheet of ice will be known as the Wachter Arena and will be built adjacent to Schaumberg Arena.

Bismarck's Park and Recreation District says it'll give kids a chance to have more ice time, along with other activities. Bismarck Public Schools and adult leagues will also make use of the new facility. The Capital Ice Complex will be open to the public upon completion.

The complex will measure at 6,300 square feet and also cost $9 million, with both the Bismarck Hockey Boosters and the Bismarck Figure Skating Club being major donors to the new project.
