Redwood Empire Ice ArenaEdit profile
The Redwood Empire Ice Arena (commonly known as Snoopy's Home Ice) is a popular northern California indoor ice rink located in Santa Rosa, California, United States. It was owned by Peanuts cartoonist Charles M. Schulz when it opened on April 28, 1969. The Arena offers public skating, private ice time, figure skating, junior hockey, and adult hockey. It is host to the annual Snoopy's Senior World Hockey Tournament, in which 64 teams from all over the world come to Santa Rosa for a week-long hockey tournament in the summer. The arena has about 500 permanent seats for hockey games, but this can be expanded to 3,000 seats for concerts and other events.
The Arena has the Warm Puppy Cafe where patrons can watch the ice activities from inside the lobby while having anything from a warm cup of cocoa to a complete meal.
Across the parking lot from the Arena is Snoopy's Gallery and Gift Shop where people can buy Peanuts-related products as well as figure skating and hockey equipment.
The Arena is located just down the street from the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center.
