ICE SKATING RINK

We are pleased to be able to offer ice skating as an activity again. Get into the Christmas spirit by gliding around a rink with Italian Lake park as a scenic backdrop.

  • Tickets are $5 each and may be purchased only at the ticket booth next to the lake.
  • Skate rental is included in the ticket price (please use the skates provided).
  • The ice is synthetic and on a grassy area beside the lake (no, we are not freezing over Italian Lake).
  • Your skate time will be written on your ticket at time of purchase. Please arrive at the rink 10 minutes beforehand to make sure you have enough time to get your skates on!
  • Each skater will have 30 minutes on the ice.
  • Parents will be permitted to accompany young children free of charge if necessary, but will need a ticket to make sure we don’t reach max capacity on the rink.
