Ontario Ice Skating Center

1225 West Holt Boulevard
Ontario, CA 91762


The Ontario Ice Skating center is the second oldest ice facility in Southern California. Built by the Vanderberg family in 1957, the original "ICE BOWL" set the precedent for a brand new and innovative dimension of entertainment. Industrious Milo Vanderberg quickly recognized that the whole new industry was being launched. Milo invented equipment, which would revolutionize the ice skating industry forever. He introduced ice re-surfacing machine, a skate sharpener, electric broom, as well as other innovations. In 1983, the rink was purchased by a longtime friend and skating professional, Donald Bartelson.

The Ontario Ice Skating Center, a landmark of this community, has been operating continuously for the public's enjoyment for 53 years. Throughout the years, numerous champions from surrounding cities have earned prestigious recognition both in figure skating as well as hockey. They include: World Professional Champion, Robert Waggonhogger of Fontana, Los Angeles King's Draft Pick, Noach Clarke of La Verne, Anaheim Duck, Torrey Di Roberto of Upland and Edmenton Oilers Draft Pick Kyle Bigos of Upland.
