The West Side Ice Arena was completed in 1974, under the administration of Mayor Sylvio Dupuis. In the summer of 2003, extensive improvements were made including new lighting, dehumidification, Low-E Ceiling, and Handicap Accessibility. The Arena once served as home ice to New Hampshire College (now known as Southern NH University) and Saint Anselm College and is now home to Manchester West and Merrimack High Schools; Over 40 Hockey League and the Industrial Hockey League.
