Ice skating returns to Williamsburg at Mid County Park

James City County Parks and Recreation welcomes winter with cool fun at Mid County Park! The County’s seasonal synthetic ice rink, previously located in New Town, has moved to Mid County Park to offer users more space and an improved skating surface.

Iceburg, the Skate Rink at Mid County Park, opens for the winter season Nov. 15-March 1. To accommodate more guests, the operating season was expanded. The relocation to Mid County Park also offers rink visitors access to more amenities including picnic tables and shelters, indoor restrooms and heated facilities, more ADA accessible parking and walking routes as well as full use of the popular and nearby Kidsburg playground as another fun recreational offering. All park facilities will remain open during skate rink operating hours.

There are weekday, weekend and winter break hours. The rink is open daily – weekdays 5-9 p.m. and weekends noon-9 p.m. The rink is closed on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Operation hours may be adjusted based on weather conditions, participation numbers and special events. Also check out jamescitycountyva.gov/iceburg regularly for the complete list of themed skating nights and festivities.

Skating is $8/adult and $7/youth ages 6-17, and the fee includes the skate rental. James City County and Williamsburg residents can skate for $7/adult and $5/youth ages 6-17, including skate rental. Youth ages 5 and younger skate for free. Season passes are also available for families, adults, youth and seniors ranging from $30-65 per person depending on residency. The rink will maintain a supply of skates ranging from children’s 9 to women’s 10 to men’s 13.

There is no age requirement, but everyone entering the rink must wear skates. Children under 12 must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times.

The surface of the open-air skate rink is made of an EZ Glide 350 synthetic ice surface, offering a smooth surface suitable for all skating activities. Synthetic ice has a similar surface to ice, and almost anything that can be done on refrigerated ice can be performed and perfected on this synthetic ice. While synthetic ice is about 65 percent of the speed of real ice, there is risk of injury from falls and collisions. Skaters of all ages and abilities will find the surface as a safe and enjoyable alternative to refrigerated ice.

During the seasonal operation of the Skate Rink, the park’s basketball courts will be closed through March 7. Please visit the County parks offering basketball court options: Ironbound Park, 150 Magazine Rd., Chickahominy Riverfront Park, 1350 John Tyler Memorial Hwy. and the Warhill Sports Complex, 5700 Warhill Trail which features four courts with lights. Two indoor courts are also available at the James City County Recreation Center, 5301 Longhill Rd. For a one-time fee of $10, County residents can purchase a Daily Card, good for two years. The Card provides free access to the Center fitness equipment and courts on three days – Thursdays, 1-3 p .m.; Fridays, 6-8  p.m.; and Saturdays, 2-5 p.m.

For more information on skating, group rates or to schedule private functions, please call 757-259-5360.
