Great while visiting, family loved it. Nice that it's located just across street from the Charles Schulz Museum too! Makes a great family day. Cute gift shop too -- lots of snoopy stuff.

If this place doesn't inspire you to learn how to ice skate, then nothing will (except perhaps watching Snoopy glide effortlessly across the ice in typical Beagle fashion!). But even if you can't skate at all, it's definitely worth checking out, if only to see the Zamboni with Snoopy on the side of it.

My husband and son are both hockey players and my daughter was a figure skater so we have been to alot of ice rinks in our lifetime. While this may not be the biggest or most modern ice rink we have ever been to, it was definitely one of the coolest, especially since I am a Snoopy fan.

Spectators must bring warm clothes to watch the hockey games from the stands. ( stands are rinkside)If you watch the hockey games from the warm puppy cafe,... More

The ice arena, constructed by the Charles Schultz family is one of the highlights of our community. The atmosphere for an ice rink is great... it has a Swiss decor with murals. The ice is usually in okay shape and the management balances hockey with figure skating. There are many public session and trainers to help you with your skating.... More

This was the first time my kids have ever ice skated and they loved it!. There were lots of other families with small kids which made it even better for my kids. The music was good and the staff was really nice. Very easy to find and lots of parking.

This is a fantastic family outing place. Many years ago I learned to ice skate at this venue. My first hand-holding happened here. It is a lovely place of memories for me. First place I fell on my derriere in public. :) People and families from all over Sonoma County have been going here for at least 45 years. During... More

The ice arena was built by Charles Schultz and has the look of Barvaria or Switzerland. There is a cozy coffee shop for eating. A few steps away is a place to shop and you'll find much Snoopy stuff.
