[ARCHIVED] Gilroy Gears Up for Ice Skating and Hockey Opportunities
The City of Gilroy and Sharks Sports & Entertainment LLC (SSE) are finalizing a partnership agreement to design and construct an indoor, two-rink recreational facility ice facility at the Gilroy Sports Park. The partnership with SSE will be patterned after the company’s existing successful public-private partnerships to manage and operate recreational ice rinks in the cities of San Jose, Fremont, and Oakland.
While the project details are still being finalized, the facility is anticipated to provide the South County community with opportunities for professional and recreational ice hockey and ice-skating activities, as well as a restaurant to service rink patrons and other residents.
In light of these forward-moving discussions, the City has hired a project manager and initiated conversations with an architect. The City will soon begin architectural design of the facility and anticipates construction, starting with infrastructure work, to begin before the end of the year.
We are very excited about this project and look forward to the opening of a recreational facility that will benefit our community and our youth.
