Private ice rentals are ideal for groups who want the ice to themselves. Rentals can be used for ice skating events, birthday parties, nonprofit fundraisers, hockey team practices or team-building activities.

Ice is generally only available late evenings and weekdays during the busy season (November–March), with greater availability during the fall and spring.

Ice is rented by the hour (see rates below) and includes:

  • 15-minute ice cut prior to session
  • Two locker rooms
  • Nets (for hockey programs) or skate aids (walkers)

Ice rental does not include:

  • Pucks
  • Skate rentals (available for $2 per pair)
  • Skate guard (available for $15 per hour)

Large events (events spanning more than 3 hours or with 100 people in attendance) will be charged a $50 special event fee to cover cleaning costs.
