Foster's Freeze and nearby Skating Rink

by Celia
(Ventura County, CA)

Does anyone remember the skating rink that was next door to, and east, of the Foster's Freeze on Telegraph Road?

In the early 1960s, my younger brother and I would go skating, then head over to Foster's for a root beer freeze and corn burritos -- in 1962-63, their corn burritos were 10 cents apiece or 12 for $1.00.

Foster's Freeze, Corn Burritos, Corrales
by: Anonymous

I remember fosters corn burritos, not the skating rink, but you can still get corn burritos BETTER ones at Corrales on Thompson, they're still pretty cheep and so tasty. I used to get them every day for lunch when I worked at Pepsi, there was a Corrales across the street on the avenue.

As a kid during the "happy days" era of the '50's I spent many happy hours in that skating rink. The nearby A&w Root Beer had can hops to bring Root Beer floats to the cars after you ordered on a speaker outside the car. Foster's little corn bean burrito's were the best though.

FOSTER'S FREEZE
by: Anonymous

The Skating Rink was named SKATELAND.
"Frosties" had great Corn Burrito's, but the best in town are at Top Hat Burger Palace across from Ventura High School.

Still crave a root beer freeze to this day

My sisters and i and lots of friends enjoyed Skateland. I was never that good at it, using the wall to come to a stop, but we still had a great time. I went to VHS my sophomore year, then transferred to Buena, the new school on the east end. Don't remember the Fosters Freeze near VHS, only the one near Skateland on the East End, and the one they built next to Buena. Jerry's Market was across the street from Skateland and Foster's Freeze. Our mother shopped there, since we lived near all these things.
