Frog Pond Ice Skating
Other Ideas: The Rinks at Exeter; Winter Ice at The Point; Veterans' Memorial Skating Rink; Jack Kirrane Ice Skating Rink; The Skating Club of Boston Skating Academy
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.
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.
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 Club’s 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 Boston’s 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.
