Pavilion and sledding hill wins prestigeous design awards
Ariens Hill is the hub of activity and central placemaking element within the Titletown District. Located adjacent to a 10-acre park and Lambeau Field, it is designed to draw people throughout the entire year.
“The Hill” was inspired by the idea of a piece of earth pushed upward on a crystalline block of ice within the Frozen Tundra. During winter months the 30% slope becomes a sledding hill that passes over a skating pond winding beneath the structure. In warmer months, the hill becomes an inclined lawn used for concerts and recreation, while the skating area below becomes a public plaza. Throughout the year a café on the ground level and the event space on the second floor are open to the public.
The hill’s multi-use, multi-seasonal nature has been well received by the Ashwaubenon community. In its first year 60,000 skaters and tubers enjoyed Ariens Hill and skating rink with an additional 20% growth projected each year.
