FAQs

How do I know the schedule of activities?

Weekly schedules will be available in print at The Pavilion and online.

Is The Pavilion available for rentals and parties?

Yes, you can learn more about hosting skate parties and groups on our parties page.

In addition, during the non-ice season, you can rent the entire facility or a portion for your private function or community event. Learn more on our Pavilion rental page.

About the Ice Season:

When is ice season? When is the sport court or non-ice season?

The ice season will normally begin in early November and conclude at the end of March. The sport court or non-ice season runs approximately from mid-April through mid-October.

The 2017-18 ice season is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, October 31. Join us for Halloween Ice Season Opener from 4:00 to 8:00 pm.

How will weather conditions affect the ice?

Because the ice sheet is refrigerated and protected by The Pavilion’s roof, dasher boards and clear side panels, weather should not impact our ability to build and maintain ice. However, it is an outdoor rink and ice conditions may vary some.

How about ice skates?

Rental skates are available for $3 per person or you can bring your own skates.

What do I need to pay to use The Pavilion?

You can pay a single visit drop-in fee or purchase a 10-visit pass and save 20%. We also have season passes available.

Do you have helmets available? Do you require helmets on the ice?

The Pavilion encourages all skaters to wear a helmet while on the ice, especially children. We have loaner helmets available to use or you can bring your own.  The sizes available are: Youth (Toddler- Age 5ish), XS/S, M/L and L/XL. All of The Pavilion’s loaner helmets are dual-certified which means that they comply with U.S. CPSC Bike and ASTM Skate safety standards.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends that ice skaters use hockey, bicycle, ski or skateboard helmets. If you want to follow that recommendation, it may be best to look for a helmet certified to the ASTM Skateboard standard, F 1492, or even dual certified to the skateboard and bicycle helmet standards. They have some multi-impact capability and more coverage in the rear than a bike helmet.

Do I need to register for the pick-up hockey and stick time?

Yes, it’s highly recommended. Learn more on the hockey page.

Is there a fee to watch a game or practice?

The public is welcome to come spectate during the ice season. If you are not participating in the activity, there is no fee.
