About Ice in Paradise

The Greater Santa Barbara Ice Skating Association (GSBISA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created with the mission to construct and operate Ice in Paradise, a public ice skating sports and recreational facility for the youth, students, families and the surrounding Santa Barbara Community. Our state-of-the-art Ice in Paradise arena provides ongoing ice recreation for people of all ages and abilities.

Located in Goleta, near Girsh Park, the Camino Real Marketplace, and UC Santa Barbara, this state-of-the-art venue provides year-round recreation for people of all ages.  Our 46,500 sq. ft. arena includes two rinks - a NHL size rink (200' x 85') and a smaller studio rink (100'x 60').   Our facility includes 6 team locker rooms, a figure skating room, specially equipped adaptive sports locker room, food concessions provided by Zizzo's, rental skates, a homework center, organized programs for figure skating and ice hockey (boys, girls, adults) and daily public skating.

We look forward to seeing you at Ice in Paradise.
