Winterhawks Skating Center

Come out and skate where to pros skate: the Winterhawks Skating Center. You don't need to be a professional ice hockey player to skate here, they share the ice! Get out of the city and take a trip over to Beaverton for some slippery fun, especially because the skate rental is free! Admission is $20, but if you have little ones of 5 years and younger, don't worry about paying - they skate for free! Be sure to stop by their concession stand for some snacks in between loops around the rink, or grab a hot coco for an added touch of the holiday feel.

Public skate sessions are available nearly every day, so grab the kids and hop in the car for a cute, cool, cozy outing on the ice!
