Desert Diamond Arena
Glendale, Arizona, United States
Desert Diamond Arena, formerly Gila River Arena, is part of the Glendale Town Center, a development that includes 225 acres of mixed-use entertainment in addition to office buildings, a shopping district and theaters with surface and structured parking. In order to preserve the pedestrian scale of the development, the arena seating bowl is set into the ground, rising only 75 feet above grade. The arena is home to the Arizona Coyotes of the National Hockey League and designed to also host basketball, ice shows, center stage concerts, end stage concerts and other special events.
