The city canceled all activities and closed the ice arena in 2016 due to mechanical failures of the ice making equipment and other building systems. Estimates to repair, or otherwise renovate, the facility proved to be cost prohibitive. In September, the facility was winterized to reduce overall operating cost and, will reopen for a limited number of seasonal events.
“This is the end of an era in Berkley.” said Matt Baumgarten, Berkley City Manager. “This auction provides residents, along with hockey team and figure skating alumni, an opportunity to own a piece of Berkley history.”
