Skate Under the Stars

Visalia Parks & Recreation Department Announces Return of Outdoor Skating Rink.

The Visalia Parks and Recreation Department announces the return of their popular holiday attraction to downtown Visalia. The Enchanted Ice Garden enjoyed an active holiday season and will be open every weekend through the end of January.

“We are very excited to bring the Enchanted Ice Garden back to downtown Visalia,” stated Jeannie Greenwood, Director of Visalia Parks and Recreation. “Our rink is brand new and bigger and better than ever.”

Presented by the Visalia Parks and Recreation Department, the Enchanted Ice Garden is one of only a handful of outdoor ice rinks in the Central Valley. 

Garden Street Plaza will once again be transformed into a winter wonderland, as the rink fits perfectly inside and will be comprised of synthetic ice. Why synthetic ice? It is more versatile and safer than refrigerated ice and will not require on-going refrigeration, saving both energy and water.

A perfect outing for friends, a family night or even a holiday party, the Enchanted Ice Garden is open to all guests, however, skaters must be four years or older to venture onto the ice. 

Open-skate admission is $10 per person and includes skate rental. There is no charge for spectators to come out and watch the fun. 

Business, organizations and even families that are interested in booking their holiday parties, birthdays or anniversaries can contact the Visalia Parks and Recreation Department to book a private skating rental. Morning, afternoon and evening private rentals are available for various dates during the Enchanted Ice Garden’s run this winter season.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to create some wonderful memories that are sure to last a lifetime! For more information on the Enchanted Ice Garden, please contact Visalia Parks and Recreation at (559) 713-4365.
