Arena History

In the 1930’s, Concord citizens formed a not-for-profit corporation, The Concord Ice Skating Arena, Inc., to build and operate an indoor ice skating arena. The arena was built in 1965 and named after Doug Everett, a 1932 Olympic Silver Medalist, for his skill in skating and hockey as well as his civic and business leadership. In 1981, the City of Concord acquired the Everett Arena and the facility is now owned, operated, and maintained by the General Services Department. The arena’s mission is to provide a safe, attractive, and well-operated multi-purpose facility for the Concord community at competitive rates of other facilities in the region.
