From Humble Beginnings

A Dream Becomes a Reality Community

The Palouse Ice Rink opened in 2002 and provided local communities a friendly atmosphere where children and adults can participate in a wide range of ice related recreational activities. The initial rink was intended as a temporary facility to establish whether enough demand existed on the Palouse for one to operate successfully. After 20 seasons and thousands of smiles later, the PIR Board was able to build a permanent structure rink in 2022.


Bill and Donna Parks

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!
