Do I have to take a lesson or class to come Ice Skating?

No, a class or lesson gives you tutoring on how to control your skates, move around and stay safer, but it is not required. We’ll be happy to see more folks enjoying skating with or without a lesson!

What should I wear?

Light layers, covered legs (and covered arms strongly advised).

Gloves or mittens are also good for when first learning, as there will be times you’ll need to touch the ice to learn to stand from a sitting position.

I’d like to video/take pictures of my day out ice skating, can I use my phone to film on the ice?

Mobile phones and any other electronic device (cameras, music players, headphones) are not permitted  on the ice. If you’d like to capture the moment, you’ll need your camera-person to step off the ice for their safety and that of other ice users.

I don’t like the music playing in the Ice Rink, can I play my own if I wear “in-ear” headphones?
