It is home to the minor league hockey team The Colorado Eagles. Now, it’s getting some upgrades. Larimer County approved renovations of about $420,000.

“We recognized an opportunity to revitalize the fan experience and made a decision to use the time we had to improve,” says District General Manager for Spectra Venue Management, Keller Taylor, in a statement. “Optimizing safety and event quality will be our top priorities upon re-open.”
