Ice Skates

Skate rentals are included with the cost of admission at The T-Mobile Winter Park at Civic Center.

For beginning skaters under 48" tall, we offer Skate Helpers: Penguin & Polar Bear Helpers that glide with the skater along the ice and helps with balance and control. Skaters must be able to stand on their own and push the Helper by themselves. Others cannot push them.

For safety considerations, Skate Helpers cannot be rented to anyone over 48" tall and are rented at the discretion of the Rink Manager. They may be paid for rink side or at the Cashier Window for $6.


Lockers may be rented for $3 and are large enough to hold a couple of pairs of shoes, a medium-size handbag and a few small purchases.
