After a year of being closed and undergoing a $2.3 million renovation, Stockton’s Oak Park Ice Rink has reopened.

The city said the project included replacing the ice rink chiller, all the piping under the ice and new dasher boards around the rink.

“It is a fantastic project and a great feeling to ensure everyone can continue to enjoy the ice rink for decades to come,” Stockton Economic Development Department Parking & Venue Manager Tina McCarthy said.

With the ice rink being the only one in San Joaquin County, it serves as a rink for various organizations such as the Stockton Jr. Colts youth hockey organization, St. Mary’s High School hockey team and the local figure skating chapter.

The rink is also open to the public and is offering public skating sessions for all ages Saturdays and Sundays from 3-5 p.m.

General admission costs $12 per person and skaters 5 and under enter the rink free of charge.

The ice rink is located on Alvarado Avenue in Oak Park and more information can be found online.
