GREEN BAY, Wis. - The Green Bay Packers have doubled down on their image of playing on the frozen tundra, unveiling more details for its Titletown District that include a winter tubing hill and a skating rink at its heart.
The team announced Thursday the district will also include a football-themed playground and full-sized football field with an artificial surface.
Packers vice-president Ed Policy says it's an open invitation for visitors and the community to come out and play at Titletown year-round, not just on game days.
The Titletown District is a 35-acre development just west of Lambeau Field. Anchors include Lodge Kohler hotel and Hinterland Brewery, which are expected to open by the start of the 2017 season. Ten acres in the middle of the district will be a park and plaza.
