MetroParks Ice Rink

Get out and skate on the region's largest outdoor ice rink!

MetroParks Ice Rink LogoWhether you’re a skating rookie or have been lacing up your skates for decades, and whether you’re looking for a leisurely afternoon with the family or a competitive night on the ice, there is a full slate of activities to choose from at the MetroParks Ice Rink. The ice rink is located within RiverScape MetroPark and features sweeping views of both the Great Miami River and the downtown Dayton skyline. It measures 70 feet by 150 feet and is sheltered under a pavilion. The rink has something for everyone: beginners’ lessons, open skating, broomball and curling, not to mention hot chocolate and music. Ice skating is a great way to experience the outdoors during the cooler weather and provides a winter tradition for Miami Valley families looking for something fun to do together.

Thank you to the 2020-2021 MetroParks Ice Rink sponsors: Sinclair Broadcast Group, MSD, Kettering Health Network, Huffy, USI Midwest, City BBQ, CODE Credit Union, and Ed Smith Flowers & Gifts.
