Frog Pond Ice Skating - CANCELLED for 2020
Other Ideas: Boston Area Ice Skating Rinks (& Beyond); Kendall Square Community Ice Skating; Winter Ice at The Point; Valley Sports Ice Skating Rink; The Rinks at Exeter
We are sad to announce that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Boston Common Frog Pond will not be opening the ice-skating rink for the 2020-2021 winter season. We look forward to welcoming skaters to the ice next year.
=====Past Year's Info====
The Frog Pond is open for the season. Sharpen those skates, or rent some! A hopping spot for ice-skating is the Frog Pond on the Boston Common.
Although dependent on the weather, Frog Pond has its own ice-making system. It also offers skate rentals and hot cocoa at the Pond Cottage.
This year the Frog Pond introduces freestyle skating on Tuesdays-Thursdays from 7:45am-9:45am. Donít forget to bring your own skates, because there are no rentals during that time.
The prime location of Frog Pond makes it easy to squeeze in just an hour or so of ice skating. Why not go skating while waiting for a movie at the Boston Common Loews Theater? Or go skating to relax after a crazy day of shopping in the nearby Downtown Crossing. And for the hopeless romantics out there, go skating under the starlit sky and finish it off with a stroll in the park.
Individual season passes are available for $100, family passes with children ages 13 and under are $150, and lunch passes good Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (holidays excluded), are available for $60.
The Skating Club of Boston at Frog Pond will be offering expanded year-round passes valid for public skating at the Frog Pond in the winter months and at The Skating Clubís indoor facility located at 1240 Soldiers Field Road in Boston during the months when the Frog Pond skating rink is closed. Individual year-round passes are available for $150 and family year-round passes for $225.
The Skating Club of Bostonís Frog Pond Skating School has greatly enhanced its skating lessons program this year and will be offering a variety of group and private skating lessons throughout the season for skaters of all levels and ages, from raw beginners to those aspiring to be figure skaters and hockey players. The Skating School is also offering skating lessons for special needs skaters as well as special skating school scholarships for individuals and public school groups.
