Ice Skating

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is represented by this colored map.

Where to Ice Skate

These parks have lakes or ponds for ice skating.


After the temperature hits rock bottom and Jack Frost is really nipping at your nose, get dressed in warm layers and head out to ice skate. Natural ice is not usually as smooth as ice in a rink, but the view in a park can be spectacular.

Always be careful when venturing onto the ice. If you plan to go where the ice is not monitored for safety, make sure that the ice is at least four inches thick and carry safety equipment.

Find out where to go with our weekly winter activities report, online from December until spring thaw.

Access for People with Disabilities

If you need an accommodation to participate in park activities due to a disability, please contact the park you plan to visit.
