Ice is also available year-round, offering skating, hockey and curling lessons, games and tournaments.

In October 2020, a bonding bill was passed by the Minnesota Legislature that included $5.6 million in state funds for an expansion of the RCC. A Capital Campaign is currently under way to raise additional funds for the project. For more information, visit runestonecommunitycenter.com .
