Skate Aids:
We have buckets available for the first-time or beginning ice skaters. Stacking buckets, as bucket availability permits, allows for height adjustment. A limited number of sleds are available (allowing a skater to stand upright and hold onto two, parallel bars) and be pushed by an adult-age skater).

Handicapped/Wheelchair Ice Access:
Upon request, we have permitted wheelchair access on the ice. Those in wheelchairs must be accompanied and propelled by an adult.
