Riverside Ice Rink

Riverside Ice Rink is the only place for ice skating in the Lafayette area. It is a small outdoor ice rink, but it has cooling coils so that it can remain open even when it is somewhat above freezing. Skating generally takes place in a counter clockwise manner around the rink leaving a small area in the center which is open for general use. Inexperienced skaters may hold on to the walls of the rink for support while ice skating.

Experienced skaters will be disappointed with the rink's small size, but it is preferable to not being able to skate at all. There is not much instruction available during general skating sessions, but there are guards to help you if you fall down.

  • Restrooms and a drinking fountain are available for the public
  • Some but not a lot of parking is free in Tapawingo Park
  • There is a heated shelter for putting on your skates and resting next to the ice rink
  • Ice skates are available for rental
  • A fee is charged for skating and skate rental. See the rink website for current pricing.
