Ice Arena - Public Skate
When planning a Public Skating outing, plan to arrive a few minutes early to avoid a possible wait in line. 500 new pairs of skates are available to rent in all sizes by exchanging shoes. Toddlers need to go up one size, children's skates generally run true to size while adults should request skates one size smaller than street shoes.
