Encyclopedia > London Ice House

The London Ice House is an arena in London, Ontario, Canada. It was originally built in 1963 and was home to the London Knights ice hockey team from 1965-2002. The arena had a capacity of 5,075 and was originally known as Treasure Island Gardens, but most notably known as the London Gardens, from its opening until 1994, when the London Knights and the building were purchased by new owner Doug Tarry, who changed the name of the building and altered the team's longstanding colours from green and gold to eggplant and teal. This would prove to be a disastrous mistake (both the arena name change and team colour change) as the team and building went downhill steadily, as Tarry preferred to allow the building to deteriorate as part of his lobbying the city for a new arena. Team and building underwent a renaissance after being purchased by the Hunter family. The team would leave the Gardens/Ice House in 2002 and relocate downtown in the newly built John Labatt Centre downtown.
