Seeking Information About Bergen Mall Ice Arena

RinkAtlas is seeking information about Bergen Mall Ice Arena, a 500-seat, single-sheet arena that used to be located on the site of The Outlets at Bergen Town Center in Paramus, NJ. See its entry in the RinkAtlas Directory.

Bergen Mall Ice Arena opened about April 21, 1973, according to New Jersey Sports Ice Rink Opening Due which appeared in The New York Times. We believe it was located on the site of the REI Co-Op at 2200 Bergen Town Center. It had a 185 x 85-foot indoor ice sheet and seating for approximately 500 spectators.

Here is the information we are looking for:

Closing Date (Exact or Approximate) of Bergen Mall Ice Arena and Some Substantiation of that Date

We would like to be able to state when this facility closed. An exact or approximate date of closure, with some substantiation from a news article that appears on the Internet or a document from one of the hockey leagues that used the facility, would be greatly appreciated.

Your Memories

If you played at this arena and have specific memories of it that you’d like to share, please contact Dave Aiello at the email address listed below.


We are looking for any available photos of the arena. Although quite a few RinkAtlas users from the New York Metropolitan Area played hockey or skated there, we are trying to get a better sense of what the arena looked like. Photos of the inside or outside of the arena would be extremely helpful. All photo submissions should be in accordance with the RinkAtlas Photography Guide.
