A winter wonderland is not complete without sparkling ice. Stockeld Park’s large outdoor Real Ice Rink is open through October, November and into the festive season until 8 January 2018.
Set in the magnificent parkland of Stockeld Park and fringed by the twinkling lights of the magical Enchanted Forest, this is a unique ice skating venue. As the festive season approaches it is a great place to celebrate and enjoy some seasonal cheer. **
What to wear?
It is essential that you wrap up warm on the rink and we advise all skaters to wear warm layered clothing and if possible a waterproof jacket.
Hats are recommended as hoods are not allowed to be worn up on the ice rink.
Gloves and thick socks are also advisable – gloves are available to purchase in the shop.
We have a limited number of lockers available to store bags whilst skating – no bags are permitted on the ice and should not be left unattended at any time.
The use of cameras, music players or any hand-held equipment is not permitted whilst skating.
With skate hire we provide ice skates with quick fastening buckles as opposed to the traditional lace up skates.
– Our ice skates range from child size 7 to adult size 14.
We also have a limited number of double bladed Bob Skates available for very small feet.
– Bob Skates are adjustable and are suitable for child size 6 to child size 9.
You can bring your own ice skates to use (figure & hockey style only) but you must have purchased an activity token or day pass to use the ice rink.
Penguin Skating Aids
We have a limited number of penguins available to support younger skaters.
We follow the manufacturer’s height recommendations for using the penguin skate aids and the maximum height to use a penguin is 1.2m with skates on – There are measurement signs located at the ticket office and the ice rink.
The penguins are free of charge to use and are only available on a first come first served basis as they are in heavy demand.
All minors should be accompanied at all times by a responsible adult.
We advise that children under the age of 4 should not skate.
All children under the age of 8 should be accompanied on the rink by an adult – up to a maximum of 5 children per adult.
Adults supervising children aged 8 to 17 may watch from the side of the rink.
Skating is NOT suitable for pregnant women, anyone with a heart condition or anyone still recovering from an injury.
