The Cleveland Foundation Skating Rink returns to Public Square this winter and we’re kicking off the season with a day of free ice skating November 25! This is the Cleveland Foundation Skating Rink’s second year in the redesigned Public Square, and the second year we’ve offered a free skate day to the community to coincide with Downtown Cleveland Alliance’s Winterfest.
At Winterfest 2016, more than 1,900 Greater Clevelanders and visitors took advantage of the free skating session. This year, we’re proud to return to Winterfest and we hope the community will again come out to enjoy a day of ice skating on us.
On November 25, skaters can enjoy free ice skate rental and a 45-minute session on the ice between the hours of 8 a.m. and 11 p.m. Tickets are required and will be available on the day of the free skate on a first come, first served basis at a kiosk next to the rink, near the Soldiers and Sailors Monument.
You don’t have to wait until November 25 to skate; the Cleveland Foundation Skating Rink officially opens to the public on Friday, November 24 and will remain open through February 28, 2018. Skating is available for $10 per skater, including skate rental. Tickets are $7 for those who bring their own skates. Tickets, including 10-packs offering a savings of $25, are available at the kiosk next to the rink. Proceeds from tickets sales will support future community events and activities in Public Square.
Our support for the Cleveland Foundation Skating Rink continues our commitment to vibrant, inclusive community programming in Cleveland Public Square. We look forward to seeing you in the Square!
