Opened in 1997, Northshire Civic Center - Riley Rink sits on 35 acres in the foothills of Vermont's bucolic Green Mountain National Forest on Route 7A in Manchester Center, Vermont.  With 22,000 square feet of open floor space and an Olympic-sized indoor skating rink, it is Southern Vermont's premier civic center for sports, events, and exhibitions.

Northshire Civic Center - Riley Rink at Hunter Park features recreational skating, figure skating instructions, youth and adult hockey leagues, and it is home to the Northshire Skating Academy and Burr and Burton High School Hockey during the winter months. 

In March the rink transforms to an indoor Turf arena, where we have lacrosse, field hockey, baseball, youth soccer and adult soccer league. 

In May, events & exhibitions begin and are held weekly through October, including Vermont Symphony Orchestra, Art & Craft Festival, Green Mountain Bluegrass & Roots Festival, Komen New England,  Barn Sale, Super Bingo, and much more.
