After 20 years of faithfully serving the skating community, Ice Station Valencia is sadly announcing that it will be closing its doors permanently, effective immediately.
On March 13, 2020, with the solemn responsibility to the health and safety of our staff, patrons and coaches, Ice Station made the difficult decision and announced its temporary suspension of operations.
The uncertainty of a reopening date combined with loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic has made a recovery unsurmountable and closing permanently unavoidable.
We would like to extend our sincere empathy for the extraordinary hardship so many of our customers, employees and communities are facing.
To our long-standing staff, we want to express our deepest gratitude and best wishes as they overcome this challenge and discover new careers.
To our customers, we thank you for your support over the past two decades. There has been no bigger satisfaction than to have served the hockey and skating community over these wonderful years.
Finally, it has been a privilege and an honor to have been a positive part of so many peoples’ lives and we hope that you and your families stay safe and healthy during these very challenging times.
We understand that there will be many questions and comments regarding this sad announcement.
