The Irvine Ice Foundation will showcase their new state-of-the-art public ice facility, Great Park Ice, at the Orange County Great Park at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 7. Great Park Ice is the largest ice facility in California and one of the largest in the U.S. with a 280,000-square-foot structure.
The new facility is home to hockey as well as other ice activities including public recreational skating, competitive and recreational figure skating, sled hockey, curling, broomball and additional community events. The facility includes four sheets of ice, including FivePoint Arena which features seating for 2,500 spectators, giving the area's burgeoning high school hockey league an appropriate location to host highly attended games as well as highly anticipated figure skating competitions and other events that require additional seating.
The $110 million plus facility will help answer a growing need for additional ice sheets in the local area.
