About the Project
Nestled among towering redwoods, with faithful reproductions of Swiss chalet facades and panoramic scenes from the Swiss Alps, Snoopy's Home Ice feels like an alpine village in a redwood forest. It is truly a magical place.
The Redwood Empire Ice Arena is truly the most beautiful Ice Arena in the world. The Arena opened on April 28th, 1969 with a gala event starring the 1968 Olympic Gold Medallist Peggy Fleming and the Vince Guaraldi trio. The grand opening was the culmination of almost a year of construction.
A Santa Rosa icon for over 50 years, Snoopy's Home Ice offers a unique atmosphere for families to enjoy recreational ice skating and a world-class facility to support the goals of local athletes in the sports of ice hockey and figure skating. Home to the Warm Puppy Café and Snoopy's Gallery & Gift Shop, the arena complex is also a popular destination for Peanuts fans from across the globe.
Snoopy's Home Ice is located in the heart of Sonoma County's wine country, just one hour from San Francisco. There are many activities to include after your visit: hike along the beautiful Sonoma coast; stroll through a majestic redwood grove; visit world-class wineries. Santa Rosa offers many activities, whether you are here for a day or a week.
