Get your name in front of thousands of ice rink patrons

Bill Parks 1934 – 2023

The Palouse Ice Rink is saddened to hear of the passing of Bill Parks on March 5 at the age of 88. Without Bill and his wife Donna’s generosity in selling the former NRS Building to the Palouse Ice Rink, we would not have our amazing new facility.

Bill and Donna attended the 2022 Palouse Ice Rink Gala in the new facility and were able to see the community’s excitement and enthusiasm as a result of their generosity. The building, named the Parks Activity Recreation Center (PARC) will remain as a memorial for Bill.

About our Parks Activity Recreation Center

Bill and Donna Parks sold PIR the former NRS building at a significantly reduced price. With the $1 million Hamilton Fund and additional generous donations, PIR was able to transform the building into a full-size ice rink that opened December 2022. Thank you to all of our private and business donors who helped raise additional funds for this amazing project! Drop by and see our new building at 2019 South Main Street, Moscow. We’ll be working on Phase II of this amazing building project!

Here’s how you can help

Our new 40,000 square foot building now has a new rink open for business with indoor restrooms, a skate shop, and concessions stand as well as a new Science on Ice Classroom! There is still more renovations needed to complete our viewing areas, locker rooms, and more.

Cash donations are always accepted, and because we are a 501 c (3) entity, are fully tax-deductible. Please make checks payable to Palouse Ice Rink and mail to PO Box 8023, Moscow, ID 83843.

You can also Donate using Paypal.  

We will also accept a binding pledge note that is contingent on raising enough capital to complete the renovations.  Visit HERE or more ideas on how to give to Palouse Ice Rink.
