Last summer, the Thomas James Knox Rink opened to the Westerville community at Alum Creek Park South. 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, who passed away unexpectedly in his sleep in December 2015. Thomas was an avid hockey player at St. Charles Preparatory School.
With your support, the rink will continue to celebrate Thomas’ legacy and bring shared enjoyment to Westerville for generations to come. You can also be part of the legacy by purchasing a commemorative brick that will be placed at the north entrance of the facility. This donor walkway will recognize major contributors to the project and offer a display of memorial bricks. Please fill out this order form to get started.
