Pinecone Regional Park established.
Bernick’s Arena opened in Pinecone Regional Park.
Beginning in 2004
Established yearly partnerships with local athletic associations to utilize Bernick’s Arena for training, games, and tournaments.
Outfitted the arena with astro-turf, which served as the catalyst for year-round usage. The turf made Bernick’s one of the few facilities in Central Minnesota that offered indoor playing fields.
Launched a spring concert series at the arena, bringing thousands of people to the arena on a yearly basis.
Entered into a long-term lease with the Sartell Sapphires Gymnastics Association to use Bernick’s Arena for training during the spring and summer months.
Feasibility study proved project to be successful and planning committees ensued.
