Ice Skating

The Park District offers ice skating instruction for beginners of all ages, from 3 to adults. Classes are divided up by skill and often blended when learning skills. These classes operate in 7 to 10 week sessions depending on the season. Ice skates can be rented for lessons at the facility. Helmets are required for the two beginner classes and highly recommended in subsequent levels.

Skate Showcases

Two skater showcases are scheduled each year to highlight skaters’ abilities. The Holiday Exhibition takes place in December and highlights intermediate to advanced skaters. The annual Ice Show takes place in March and all skating levels are welcome to participate. This is a separate event in which skaters register to participate, are grouped with those at the same skating level, and learn a choreographed routine with costumes, spotlights, and an audience!
