Lace Up Your Skates at the Fort Dupont Ice Arena
Have you been able to pry your kid’s new electronic device out of their hands since the winter started? When it’s time to put the screens down, and get their heart rates up, don’t forget Fort Dupont Ice Arena in nearby Dupont Park. This indoor skating rink is the perfect place to visit on a cold, snowy day to enjoy a winter sport despite the outside weather. Kids (and adults, for that matter), can take advantage of weekly open skate sessions for a fun, family-friendly way to spend the day. And if your kids are just starting out, or are interested in more advanced skate-based sports, Fort Dupont Ice Arena offers the popular Learn to Skate USA program. Each 25-minute lesson includes skate and helmet rentals, along with admission to future open skates to show off their newly-learned skills.
