The game of curling is believed to be one of the world’s oldest team sports with the first written evidence that curling was happening in 1540. Curling was originally played on frozen lochs and ponds but is now played competitively at indoor curling rinks, such as the Oak Park Ice Arena.
Recently 16 curling stones were found at the Oak Park Ice Arena and are believed to be from 1929 when curling was first introduced in California at Yosemite National Park. Record Columnist, Michael Fitzgerald, published a fascinating article about the stones discovery and history that can be found by clicking HERE.
Oak Park is now forming a curling club at the arena and anyone who is interested is encouraged to call. Oak Park Ice Arena’s contact information and event calendar can be found at
