Darien Ice House has been a pillar of the Darien Connecticut community since its founding in 1973 by Frank Cooper, Francis Grasso, W. Robert Haskell, John Nastasi and John Vallerie, Jr. The rink is currently owned by the Romano family of Stamford and Michael Pavia, former Mayor of Stamford.
As one of the original rinks in Fairfield County, CT., Darien Ice House has hosted Olympic figure skating exhibitions, elite youth hockey programs, NHL player exhibitions and countless other youth and high school programs. The rink is currently home to the Darien Blue Wave boys and girls high school hockey teams as well as New Canaan Rams boys and girls high school teams. Through a recent partnership with the New Canaan Winter Club, Darien Ice House hosts various boys and girls travel hockey programs as well as the Ice Cats girls travel hockey program. It is also a host rink for the Darien Youth Hockey Association.
The rink was recently renovated with all new ice making equipment, updated locker rooms and bathrooms as well as a newly renovated front lobby. The Penalty Box snack bar offers rink customers pizza and other menu items. Public skating is very popular at the rink. The schedule can be found on this website.
We hope to see you at the rink!
