Enjoy Ice Skating Fun This Winter

Do you want to enjoy some time on the ice this winter? If so, head to one of these rinks near our Newark, Delaware apartments where you can enjoy everything from public skating sessions to a lively game of broomball.

Riverfront Rink 

A local tradition, Riverfront Rink opens for the season on November 29th. It’s known as the “coolest place in town,” and skaters enjoy stunning skyline views. Over 300 visitors can take to the ice at one time. The rink is open on weekends with daily sessions offered during the holiday break. 

Lou & Gib Reese Ice Arena 

At Lou & Gib Reese Ice Arena, the mission is to encourage skating as an affordable recreational activity. It provides year-round public skating sessions, which cost between three and six dollars, depending on the day and time. 

The arena also offers broomball. It provides the brooms, balls, and helmets, so all you need to do is gather your friends for an afternoon of fun. Easy to learn, this unique game dates back to the late 1800s when it was first played in Ontario, Canada. Players wear special rubber-soled shoes and use a broom-like stick to move the ball into the goal. The sport closely relates to hockey, and the team with the most points wins. 

Patriot Ice Arena 

Home to the Delaware Ducks, the Patriot Ice Arena is a year-round facility featuring an NHL- and Olympic-size rink. Skaters can enjoy daily open sessions daily and cosmic skate sessions on Friday nights. This popular event features more lights than ever before and takes place between 8:00 PM and 10:00 PM. 

Skaters looking to enhance their skills can enroll in classes taught by skilled instructors. Adults take structured lessons or participate in one of the ten drop-in sessions. The lessons provide a fun way to work out while learning new skills.
