Dunedin has two ice rinks. The international sized hockey rink and the adjacent curling rink at the Dunedin Ice Stadium. The facility accommodates ice hockey, curling, figure skating, speed skating and public skating.
The Dunedin Ice Stadium is run by Dunedin Ice Sports Inc. which was formed in 2003 by the Dunedin Ice Hockey Association, Dunedin Ice Skating Club and Dunedin Curling Club. Each of the individual clubs have representatives on the Dunedin Ice Sports Inc. board.
This facility replaces the old “Big Chill” in Kaikorai Valley which was never intended as a permanent home for ice sports in Dunedin. The Dunedin City Council offered the use of the old Dunedin Stadium to the board of Dunedin Ice Sports Inc. since the previous users had relocated to the Edgar Sports Center.
