Since 1985, skaters of all skill levels have glided across Portland Ice Arena, from first-time rink trekkers to practicing Portland Pirates. Public-skating season runs from mid-June to April with open-skate times available throughout the week, and the rink may be reserved for special events such as birthday parties, adult and youth hockey groups, company events, and penguin family reunions. Uninspired blades regain their edge after a trip to the arena's sharpening station, and the Cheap Skate Cafe fills empty stomachs and allows skaters to hydrate without the risk of adhering their tongues to high-traffic surfaces.
Portland Ice Arena
Throughout the skating season from July to April, more than 60,000 people visit Portland Ice Arena for open-skate sessions, to play hockey, or watch an event. Public sessions during those months send skaters of all ages gliding across the rink. The arena also plays host to a number of other icy scenes, including learn-to-skate classes and practices for the AHL's Portland Pirates. Away from the 750-seat arena, the facility provides sharpening services, rentals, and a concession area.
