Ice skating continues at University Circle through February 27, 2022

The weather is growing colder and the fresh ice at The Rink at Wade Oval will welcome its first skaters Friday, December 3, with the help of sponsor PNC Bank.

Visitors can bring their own skates or rent them on site.  A concession stand will feature seasonal treats, including hot cocoa, coffee and a variety of snacks.

Seasonal programming at The Rink will include the popular “Pink the Rink” throughout Valentine’s Day weekend, and special open skate hours on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and Presidents Day.

“Many of us have a tendency to stay indoors during the winter months but The Rink at Wade Oval is a fun way to get outside and enjoy the winter weather with family and friends,” said Pat Pastore, PNC regional president of Cleveland. “In addition to skating, many visit the museums and restaurants in the University Circle area, which provides a boost to the neighborhood economy.”

Visitors to The Rink may show their admission wristbands at the Cleveland Botanical Garden, Cleveland History Center, and Cleveland Museum of Natural History for $2 off same-day admission.  Rink wristbands may also be shown at the Cleveland Museum of Art Café for a 10% discount.

The Rink will be open through Sunday, Feb. 27, 2022.  Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for students, and skate rentals are $3 for adults and $2 for students, making The Rink an affordable winter experience.

Additional support for The Rink at Wade Oval is courtesy of Cleveland Public Power, Cleveland Department of Water, Cleveland Department of Water Pollution Control, and RTA.
