Arena Features


We are excited to bring the community together with same spirit and determination as those who built the first covered rink in Baudette in 1964-65.  The Lake of the Woods Arena will truly be a community asset and a hub of area activity for our community. When completed, it can be reserved for personal events such as weddings and graduations, for school-related activities such as Physical Education classes and practices for baseball and softball, and for community events such as farmer’s markets or concerts. A community space will be made available to the public for holding meetings and celebrations. We’d also like to develop a skate rental program for recreational skating. An accessible, safe facility will draw more visitors to our area generating revenue for local businesses.

As Lyle Larson, owner of Ronning’s said, “I can tell just by looking at the till when there’s been a hockey tournament.”
