The Hara Arena is a 5,500-seat multi-purpose arena in Trotwood, Ohio, just outside of the city of Dayton, Ohio. At one time, it hosted the Dayton Jets basketball team and Dayton Gems, Dayton Owls, Dayton Bombers, and Dayton Ice Bandits ice hockey teams, and The Marshals indoor football team. Currently it hosts the new Dayton Gems team in the resurrected International Hockey League.

History

The site was originally the family-owned fruit orchard of Harold and Ralph Wampler. In 1956, the Wampler Ballarena was erected, which still stands today in the six-building complex. The arena itself opened in 1964. The original plans did not include an ice rink, but were changed to accommodate the Dayton Gems who were looking for a home arena. The complex now spans 165,000 sq. ft. which consists of the main arena, four exhibition halls, a conference center, a pub, and a golf course.

Hara Arena is where Wayne Gretzky played his first professional hockey game; a pre-season game between the Indianapolis Racers and the Cincinnati Stingers on September 27, 1978
