A decade ago, the future of ice skating rinks in Orange County seemed as promising as that of a snow cone on a sweltering summer afternoon. The Brea Mall's rink had just closed, leaving the Ice Capades Chalet in Costa Mesa as the county's last ice-skating venue. But on Aug. 9, 1988, a decidedly winter activity suddenly became hip in a region famous for its lack of winter.

The city has agreed to add an outdoor roller hockey rink to a 5-acre park that is scheduled to be built this spring at Tustin Ranch Road and Heritage Way. "It's not a full-blown competitive arena, but it will have lights, and kids can play pickup games and practice," Mayor Tracy Wills Worley said. "We hope to build more courts on school facilities, but we feel this is at least a start." For several years, the city has discussed building a rink for the sport, but could not agree on a location.

Roller hockey teams are now playing in the Girls and Boys Club of Huntington-Valley's new outdoor portable rink--the first in the city. Huntington Beach contributed $4,000 toward the rink, which is on the basketball court at McCallen Park for league play. The rink can be dismantled when not in use. Youth leagues play from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays, said Tanya Grimes, club executive director. Some teams still have openings for players.

When a helmeted referee dropped a hockey puck on the center of an Anaheim ice rink Sunday afternoon, it wasn't just to start one of the dozens of recreational hockey games that take place across the Southland each weekend, but to strike a blow for gender equity. That's because the teams on either side of the referee were part of what is, to the best of anyone's recollection, the first amateur hockey league in Southern California established exclusively for women.

Surrounded by youth hockey players scrambling around the ice, David Wilk shouted words of encouragement as he skated effortlessly, waving a hockey stick and smiling ear to ear. "We've come to the promised land of hockey," Wilk said later, catching his breath. The youths, who come from some of Anaheim's most troubled neighborhoods, were in the middle of practice last week at Disney Ice, the new, downtown community ice rink that will be unveiled during a dedication ceremony Wednesday.

Some say it resembles a duck coming in for a landing. For others, it brings to mind the grace of ice skating. Then there are those who think it's just plain weird. The new community ice rink being built in downtown Anaheim by Walt Disney Co. has been drawing crowds of onlookers and some critics since its eye-catching frame began to rise from the construction site last week. "We have a lot of sidewalk superintendents," joked Jerry Sheeran, the contractor who is supervising construction.

Orange County's largest ice skating and in-line roller hockey arena complex will open next summer at Portola Parkway and Lake Forest Drive in Foothill Ranch, project developers said Wednesday. Glacial Garden Inc. and Muller Co. will build the $7-million, 75,000-square-foot complex on a 5.7-acre parcel near the Foothill Ranch Towne Centre and Marketplace, a 1.3-million-square-foot retail center.

Disney and city officials held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday at the site of their new joint project--a 90,000-square-foot community ice rink to be built in downtown Anaheim. The rink will serve as both a practice site for the Mighty Ducks and a community youth center. It is expected to open by fall 1995 and will be built on a 3.2-acre site bordered by Clementine Street, Lincoln Avenue and West Harbor Place.

The city will begin negotiations with a company partly owned by ice hockey star Wayne Gretzky for construction of a roller hockey rink in the new Civic Center Park. But the decision to negotiate with San Diego-based Worldwide Roller Hockey Facilities Inc. has drawn strong objections from the owner of a nearby roller hockey business and its patrons, who say the deal is unfair competition. Two outdoor rinks are proposed for a 5.
