The rink opens on December 2 and will remain open through February 26.
Visitors can bring their own skates or rent them onsite. There is also a concession stand that features seasonal treats, like hot cocoa, coffee, and snacks.
“The Rink at Wade Oval is so much more than a beautiful place to visit,” said Becky Voldrich, UCI’s senior director of Communications & Events in a press release. “It’s a place for the community to gather and create special memories with their families and friends. We’ve had so many amazing moments take place at The Rink over the years – everything from kids trying on their first pair of skates to a marriage proposal. It doesn’t get much better than that!”
In addition to enjoying open skating, guests can take part in free skating lessons each Saturday from noon – 1 p.m. beginning December 10. Organizers say there is no need to pre-register; “simply show up and enjoy.”
