Thomas James Knox Outdoor Hockey Rink Construction Begins
Contractors began this week leveling a field at Alum Creek Park South for the construction of the Thomas James Knox outdoor hockey rink.
The rink, dedicated to the memory of high school student Thomas James Knox, is being built with private funds raised by his family following his death in 2015.

On Dec. 12, Thomas Knox scored two goals in a game for the St. Charles junior varsity hockey team, went to bed at home a few hours later and never woke up. An autopsy by the Franklin County coroner’s office determined that Thomas, age 14, suffered sudden cardiac death from an abnormal heart rhythm.
Westerville City Council awarded a bid on Tuesday, Jan. 16 to move forward construction of the Thomas James Knox Memorial Rink, set to break ground in late winter or early spring 2018.
