Newly vaccinated and looking for a fun outdoor activity to try this spring? From April 30, a new retro-inspired ice rink will open in Dilworth Park.

Open until June 27, the new Rothman Orthopedics Roller rink will feature a colorful hula-hoop installation by Lucky dog ​​studio and a checkerboard floor design. The hoops “fit in perfectly with our vision for Dilworth Park this summer: bright, whimsical and full of color,” says Giavana Suraci, Downtown Marketing and Events Manager.

Skating will be available in one-hour sessions from 11 a.m. to 8:45 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 11:15 p.m. Friday and Saturday. General admission tickets cost $ 10 for adults and $ 8 for children 10 and under, while skate rentals cost $ 5 each (or you can bring your own and skip the rental fee). For groups of 10 or more, admission is $ 12 per person. COVID-19 CDC guidelines will be in place throughout the park, including a mask requirement for vendors, staff and attendees.

It is recommended that you book your session online in advance – and while you’re at it, you can book lockers as well. Suraci expects the sessions to sell out quickly on opening day and throughout the following weekend, as capacity is limited and the rink itself is smaller than the Dilworth winter rink. .

When you’re not skating, you can visit nearby attractions, including Air Grille’s beer garden, which will serve burgers and fries and frozen cocktails, or the Dilworth Park Café. Alternatively, you can participate in one of the Center City Fit outdoor classes run by Optimal Sport in Dilworth.
