Great Groupon price for what you get! The rink is a bit small as there were tons of ppl. Otherwise it was clean and the kids loved it.

I’m from Minnesota and miss having a warming house. I’m a senior citizen and would much more often if there was a place to warm up now and then. I would skate 3-4 days a week and would take my grand kids a couple times a week if we had a place we could warm up.

They were super nice and helpful. Just remember this is more like pond skating in some ways and will not be as smooth as a rink.

The skate rentals were in horrible condition. The “ice” had a half inch of skated up shaved ice that made it impossible for anyone to skate on. Took two laps and left.

We love having an outdoor skating option in the Des Moines area, especially downtown. The view over looking the river and the city is breathtaking. It would be nice to have a larger indoor space for skaters and spectators. Indoor changing space and cubbies for shoes. A welcome addition would be an indoor space with windows overlooking the rink for family members that come to watch and not skate.

From Our Editors

Brenton Skating Plaza's outdoor ice-skating rink is comprised of a 120'x60' sheet of ice that can hold up to 220 skaters. There, skaters—equipped with one of 450 pairs of skates available for rent—can cut lines through the ice in the open air. Throughout the season, which stretches from Mid-November to March, the rink hosts skating clinics, broomball league, and public skating, 7 days a week and on holidays. Those looking to warm their insides or have a treat, can enjoy a hot chocolate or snack from the concessions offered on site.
