Stockeld Park’s large outdoor Real Ice Rink open during February Fun Half Term (February 2018 dates tbc).
Set in the magnificent parkland of Stockeld Park and fringed by the magical Enchanted Forest, this is a unique ice skating venue.
The large windows of the newly refurbished Woodland Cafe look out over the Ice rink and when young and old have burned off their energy pirouetting about, they can come into the warmth and enjoy a delicious Stockeld Park hot chocolate, a yummy treat, or settle down to some hearty home-made fare.
What to wear?
It is essential that you wrap up warm on the rink. We advise all skaters to wear warm layered clothing and if possible a waterproof jacket. Gloves and thick socks are also advisable. Gloves are available to purchase at the shop.
We provide Italian designed Roces skates. These skates are a ski boot style with quick fastening buckles as opposed to the traditional lace up skates and children’s sizes are adjustable. Sizes range from child size 8 to adult size 13.
Penguins Staking Aids
If your child needs an extra hand while skating, they can pick up a penguin to steady them. We do have quite a few penguins but they are in heavy demand, so they are available on a first come first served basis and are free of charge.
All minors should be accompanied at Stockeld Park by a responsible adult. We advise that children less than 4 years of age should not skate. All children under the age of 8 should be accompanied on the rink by an adult . Adults supervising children from 8 to 17 year olds may watch from the side of the rink.
