In 2007 Ancon built the NIBCO Water and Ice Park. As part of the Elkhart downtown revitalization effort, the NIBCO Ice Park is the first of its kind in the United States. This ice park goes beyond a traditional ice skate rink, containing a 13-foot-wide path that travels approximately 410 feet around and connects to a 90-foot round skating area. On the grounds is a warming hut with lockers, a skate rental area, and a concession stand. During the summer, the circular portion is a splash pad, and the path can be used for inline skating.
