Rink at Campus Martius Park Ice Skating Detroit

Downtown Detroit’s urban oasis, Campus Martius Park, turns to a winter wonderland every year in mid-November when the ice rink opens. And starting Nov. 13, 2015 during preview weekend, ’tis the season to dust off your skates for the ice rink! Then, following the Nov. 20, 2015 tree lighting, when thousands of Detroiters and suburbanites meet in the park to see the 60-foot tree all aglow, skate and keep toasty with some warm grub through the winter season.

Even if you can’t make the grand opening, don’t sweat it! This outdoor ice rink, modeled after the one at Rockefeller Center in the Big Apple, is open for business Nov. 21, 2015-March 6, 2016 this 2015-16 season.

Day and evening hours let you chose the perfect time for the entire family to practice their figure eights or experiment their very first glides.

Once the tummies start to rumble, stop by one of the many eateries within walking distance. The Fountain Bistro is located at the edge of the ice rink, and Greektown’s only a People-Mover ride away.

Rent skates for $3, or bring your own and stash your shoes for $2. Add an additional $5 to get your personal pair of skates sharpened. Admission rates for skaters are $8 for ages 13-49, $7 for ages 12 and under and adults 50 and above.

Preview hours begin the weekend of Nov. 13, before the big shindig Nov. 20, which begins at 9 p.m. and runs until midnight.
