Wallace Civic Center at Fitchburg State University
In 2006, Fitchburg State University took over management of the Wallace Civic Center. The facility is undergoing a number of exciting new changes.
Renovations and new management will provide a state-of-the-art, high quality ice arena management and recreation services, as well as offer new and expanded programming in a manner that is responsive to public recreational and educational needs.
The Wallace Civic Center opened its doors to the public in 1970. Its founder, George Wallace, a Fitchburg resident and benefactor, funded the center's construction as a recreational as well as an educational institution for Fitchburg citizens and residents throughout New England. Over the last 25 years, the Wallace Civic Center has hosted countless sports events, musical concerts, speakers, ceremonies, and educational forums in the center's planetarium.
The complex features two separate ice arenas, and is home to the college's hockey team, several community teams, and the Wallace Figure Skating Club. The arenas are open for public use. The Civic Center is managed by Facility Management Corporation of Massachusetts.
