Culver City Ice Skating Rink Scheduled to Close Forever on February 2nd

According to THIS petition website, the venerable Culver City Ice Skating Rink will close on February 2nd. Explains the website, "The owners of the land on which the rink sits have refused The Culver Ice Arena’s owners’ offers for a new lease. The land owners are seriously considering alternative options for a new lessee."

The site urges you to sign a petition to save the Culver City landmark, saying "We want to do everything in our collective power to make sure that it stays an ice rink. With your support we are confident that we can make this a reality." The group will present the petition to the Culver City Council on Monday, January 13 -- and exhorts all interested parties to show up on that date to further demonstrate their support. Council meetings are held at 7 pm at Culver City Hall at 9770 Culver Blvd.

The site continues:

Our ice rink, which sits in the heart of screenland, has served thousands of skaters almost every day of every year for the past 52 years, since its inception in 1961. Little ones begin their Olympic dreams here, preteens and teenagers have a fun and safe place to hang out, parents and kids celebrate birthdays, schools and summer camps come for a skate, and adults take a skate down memory lane. Whether you’re just a beginning skater, figure skater or hockey player, this rink has been here for you. People from all over the city and around the world have skated here and thought of Culver Ice Arena as home.

The rink’s value to the community is immeasurable. It is priceless.  There are very few remaining recreational facilities left on the West Side and while Culver City is getting bigger and more sophisticated by the day, there is still enough space to keep the things that make raising children here rewarding and magical. It’s a big enough town for our future and our past.

It’s impossible to imagine Los Angeles and Culver City without an ice rink. Please sign and share our petition. Let’s, together, save our treasure.
