Taylor Absher, who works for the rink says, “The Heritage is a good spot, centrally located, anybody can come, it’s easy to get to, not much of a hassle, and we welcome everyone to skate. And it’s a good time.”

And if you don’t have ice skates you can rent them from the Heritage for $3.00.

Many of the Duluth high school teams play at the Heritage and the center also has a very interesting history. Before it had folks ice skating inside, the building used to be a plant.

Taylor says, “This building started because one of the arenas down the road started to burnt down and they had to restart. They wanted to give a place for these kids to skate. And this is just a good spot to play and there’s a lot of good kids that have come though this program and this rink.”

Taylor says they’ve hosted all kinds of parties at the Heritage and if you were looking to host your next event there or to look for more information you can check out their website here.
