Dodger Stadium on ice

Temperatures are expected to reach into the low 80s today but the playing field at Dodger Stadium is being covered in a sheet of ice as the ballpark prepares to host an outdoor hockey match on Saturday between the L.A. Kings and the Anaheim Ducks. The time-lapse video above shows the construction of the hockey rink. Yahoo Sports notes that Boston’s Fenway Park also hosts an outdoor hockey match but there are some differences:

Again, the most notable comparison would be Fenway Park, since they took a single Winter Classic in 2010 and expanded it into a week long Frozen Fenway event. Los Angeles is attempting to do something similar, but instead of a monster sled ramp in the outfield, Dodger Stadium features a beach volleyball court and a roller hockey rink.


  1. If you actually like hockey this is stupid … good luck finding the puck that far from the ice!

    But the really stupid part is that they’re asking $20 – $50 for parking!


    The spillover should further ice up relations with the neighborhood.

    Greedy and inconsiderate.
    bad bad dodger stadium.

  2. Hello,

    My name is Greg Dalton, I am currently a graduate student in the landscape architecture department at CSU Pomona, and am doing thesis research concerning the extent in which public participation process surrounding the Dodger Stadium parking lot redesign has engaged the public.
    I have contacted you for two reasons, the first is to ask you if you would be willing to participate in an online survey to be sent out in mid February that looks at aspects of public participation. The other is to ask you if you would be willing to guide me toward finding information concerning community opinion about the redesign for my project? If you can be of assistance in either or both of these matters it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Best Regards,
