July Public Skating Sessions

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, July public skating sessions are one-hour in length and capped at 25 skaters. Pre-registration and payment is required. Admission is $5 per skater.  Rental skates are available at the skate shop for $3. Punch cards and season passes are not accepted.

See the master schedule for session dates and times and register through our online registration page. You will need to make an account and check-in when you arrive for your session. See our operating policies for full details.

Public skating is a fun, healthy activity for all ages. And with sessions scheduled throughout the week, there are plenty of opportunities to skate. Sessions are typically an hour and a half to two hours in length, depending on the day and time. We have both hockey and figure skates for rent in a variety of sizes. Due to hockey tournaments and other events, sessions may change, so be sure to check the online schedule for the most current information.

Admission Fees

  • Adults: $6
  • Youth (Ages 4–17) & Seniors (62 and older): $4
  • Kids Under age 4: FREE
  • Skate Rentals: $3


Most skating sessions during the winter months are on the outside rink, which can be cold. Be sure to wear long (thin) socks, gloves, and warm layers to ensure an enjoyable experience. Though not required, we recommend wearing a helmet (hockey, bike or ski helmets work). We have a limited number of free helmets available for kids to borrow.

Our concession stand is open during all weekend public skating sessions during the winter season (Friday-Sunday) for snacks and hot drinks.

Please respect our posted public skate policies as they are designed to keep everyone safe during these sessions. Walkers (skate aids), sticks, and other implements are not allowed on the ice during public skating sessions.
