As the centerpiece of a 10-acre park immediately adjacent to Lambeau Field, Ariens Hill is central to the placemaking aspirations for the development. Envisioned as a piece of earth pushed upward on a crystalline block of permafrost ice, Ariens Hill embodies the idea of the Frozen Tundra that inspired it.
“The Hill” was designed to draw people throughout the entire year. During winter months the 30% slope becomes a tubing hill that passes over a skating pond that winds beneath the structure. In warmer seasons the hill becomes an inclined lawn facing the stadium that can be used for concerts and recreation, and the skating area below becomes a public plaza. Throughout the year a café on the ground level and the second floor event space are open to the public.
