General Information

Public skating is a fun, healthy activity for all ages. And with sessions scheduled throughout the week, there are plenty of opportunities to skate. We have both hockey and figure skates for rent in a variety of sizes from toddler size 8 to adult size 14.

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).

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 unless indicated.
