The city of Goleta approved a $250,000 grant towards the Greater Santa Barbara Ice Skating Association.
The money will help fund the Ice in Paradise skating center to be built by Girsh Park in Goleta.
The land was donated last month by the builder of Girsh Park, but more money is needed to build and manage the center.
The two story building will include two rinks.
