Kids Week

Skate, create, and participate in an array of kid-friendly activities

Kids Week returns this year with some changes to make sure everyone can have fun and be safe during midwinter recess! Parade around the park in a new mask, make your very own dream catcher, dance the day away at our Pajama Party on ice, and so much more at Winter Village from February 16-19. Most programs are designed for kids ages 4-6, but all ages are welcomed.

Group Skate Lessons

If your child dreams of gliding across the ice, this is their chance! During Kids Week, we are offering free 30-minute group skate lessons each morning. Instructors review the importance of proper safety measures, from learning how to adequately fall and stand, to safely marching across the ice. Participation is limited to children 12 and under. Lessons will be capped at six children, and masks are required. Due to limited capacity, we ask that families sign up for no more than one session for the week. Pre-registration is required:

Tuesday registration
Wednesday registration
Thursday registration
Friday registration

Once at the park, The Rink according to the time on your ticket and meet our instructors near the penguin and snowman shaped skate mates.
