Dunkirk's new ice-skating rink is located on the former site of an industrial port facility. The 7,500 sq. m. site has two ice tracks: the 60 by 40-meter one is reserved for hockey clubs and figure skating with stands for 1,400 people; the 42 by 20-meter one is reserved for leisure skating featuring a glass wall that provides a full view of the sugar warehouse and harbour basins.

In addition to very efficient energy-performance levels, the ice-skating rink is one of the first in France to use an innovation: using CO2 to produce cold.
