Beneath the unearthly blue glow of the plaza’s exterior building, groups of up to 220 skaters blissfully circle Brenton Skating Plaza’s glassy ice rink. Visiting pairs slip into figure or hockey skates before gliding on the 60’x120’ outdoor rink’s 2-inch-thick ice, which represents the combined effort of 8,000 gallons of water, 3 miles of refrigerating piping, and one overworked Zamboni. Solo and family season-pass holders gain unlimited access to public-skate sessions, held every day, descending upon the icy surface to carve gigantic figure eights or to perfect rapid cross-overs. However, season passes do not include skate rentals, so visitors without their own skates must rent them ($3/visit) or cobble together a pair by duct-taping butcher knives to ski boots. Open until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, skaters can speed around the rink practicing their hand-holding techniques and triple lutzes under the stars.

Brenton Skating Plaza

Brenton Skating Plaza's outdoor ice-skating rink is comprised of a 160'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 November to March, the rink hosts skating lessons, broomball games, 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.

We had a great family outing at Brenton Skating Plaza! It would be nice to have a little more "indoor" room to change into skates, etc. but overall a great activity for the whole family!
