Online ticket sales are limited, but same-day tickets are available at the ice rink ticket window 15 minutes before the first session. Tickets sell fast; we recommend arriving early or purchasing online for a future date.
A portion of ticket proceeds benefit our community through the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks.
Rent skates for $4. Figure and hockey skate sizes range from toddler’s size 8 to adult’s size 15. You may also bring your own ice skates.
Rent a Skate Helper for $6. For beginning skaters under 4 feet tall (48”) we offer Skate Helpers, penguin-looking tools that glide with the skater along the ice and help with balance and control. For safety considerations Skate Helpers are rented at the discretion of Rink Management. Skaters must be able to stand on their own and push the Skate Helper by themselves.
LOCKERS AND CONVENIENCES
Lockers may be rented for $3 and typically hold a couple of pairs of shoes, a medium-size handbag and a few small purchases.
Bathrooms are located in Pershing Square Park. Since skates may not be worn outside of the ice rink, we recommend you use the facilities before skating.
We remain open in light to moderate rain but may close in heavy or sustained rain at the discretion of ice rink management. No refunds or rain checks will be issued for tickets purchased at the door, but rain checks will be honored for tickets purchased online in advance.
