Manipulating water can be one of life's greatest joys, whether you propel it through pressurized plastic guns, burn it to create cloud dragons, or freeze it into Arctic supervillain headquarters.

Reviews

Yelpers give Downtown Ice a 3.5-star average:

  • I absolutely adore this place... its a MUST for me every Xmas! – Neil R.

Downtown Ice

Palm trees aren't normally present when Kristi Yamaguchi turns a triple axel. But that's par for the course at Downtown Ice, where the former Olympic skater has been known to circle the rink in celebration of a chilly San Jose tradition. Each year, Christmas lights wrap around the tree trunks in downtown San Jose’s Circle of Palms, lighting up the ice rink that spreads beneath the trees' fronds. Designed by rink architect Gil Garcia, the outdoor ice arena enables revelers to partake in a beloved winter tradition without being forced to partner skate with yetis. At night, the palms’ twinkling lights join stadium lighting. The seasonal ice rink is part of San Jose’s Downtown for the Holidays traditions, such as Christmas in the Park and the Winter Wonderland amusement rides.

Customer Reviews

Great place to skate. Only issue is the ice is really wet and therefore slippery, but if you can get past that, it's fun.
