During open-skate sessions, pairs glide around the outdoor rink amid panoramic views of downtown Des Moines. Learn-to-Skate sessions use the U.S. Figure Skating Basic Skills program to guide their curriculum. Each group session lasts 30 minutes and includes skate rental, one complimentary public-skate pass per week, and a one-year U.S. Figure Skating membership.

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.
