Walker Arena Muskegon

Walker Arena

The L.C. Walker Arena is a 5,100-seat multi-purpose arena in Muskegon, Michigan. It was built in 1960 by money from the estate of the late Louis Carlisle Walker at a cost of $1 million, and on October 27, 1960 was given to the City of Muskegon. It is currently home to the Muskegon Lumberjacks Ice hockey team and the Muskegon Thunder Indoor Football League team.

The arena was built on a site of a former supermarket, and in addition to sports is also used for concerts, trade shows, conventions and other events. The arena measures 39 feet (12 m) from the arena floor to the ceiling. The arena contains 17,000 square feet (1,600 m2) of arena floor space, and can seat between 5,178 to 6,000 for basketball, up to 5,600 for concerts, and 5,000 for ice shows and wrestling.

A portion of the former grocery store, built in 1936, was actually incorporated into the Arena; it is now known as the LC Walker Arena annex, used for conventions, banquets, meetings and other special events.
