Nashville's third ice skating rink and second Preds Ice Center is set to open later this year in Bellevue, joiningÂ Centennial Sportsplex and the Preds Ford Ice Center in Antioch.
TheÂ 110,000 square-foot facility, located in the mixed-use development Bellevue One Place, is expected to open in September. The building will be home to two sheets of ice.Â
Preds Ice Center is owned by the Metro Parks and Recreation Department. TheÂ Metropolitan Sports Authority will lease half the building from the parks department and sublease it to the Preds Ice Center.
What to know
The ice center will feature a dry-land training facility, full-service hockey and skating store and private party rooms available for rental, according to a release from the Nashville Predators about the facility.
You'll also findÂ a grab-and-go style concessions booth, as well as a full restaurant with views of both rinks.
What they said
"We can't wait to open this facility," Ford Ice Center General Manager Danny Butler said. "We're excited to have two more sheets of ice in Nashville, which will provide hockey players and figure skaters from all over the state and beyond further opportunities to do what they love."
"This project will be a huge benefit to Bellevue, West Nashville and the surrounding communities, and we're pleased to have the Predators logo at the forefront."
