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 arena provides affordable, year-round ice recreation for people of all ages and abilities.
Located in Goleta, near Girsh Park, the Camino Real Marketplace, and UC Santa Barbara, our award-winning, 46,500 sq. ft. arena includes two rinks – the Snider Rink, an NHL size rink (200′ x 85′) and the Norqual Rink, 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 student study or small meeting room, organized programs for figure skating and ice hockey (boys, girls, adults) and daily public skating.
We look forward to skating with you at Ice in Paradise!
