The Thomas James Knox Rink opened to the Westerville community at Alum Creek Park South in 2018. This recreational facility offers a central location for youth to be introduced to hockey as a team sport while providing a public space for programming to develop the skills of players of all ages.
The partnership between Westerville Parks and Recreation, Lisa and Jim Knox and the Columbus Blue Jackets Street Jackets helped bring this special space to fruition. The rink honors Lisa and Jim’s son, Thomas James Knox, an avid hockey player who passed away unexpectedly in his sleep in 2015.
With your support, the rink will continue to celebrate Thomas’ legacy and bring shared enjoyment to Westerville for generations to come. You can be part of the legacy by purchasing a commemorative brick that will be placed in a donor walkway at the north entrance of the facility. Please fill out this order form to get started.
