(Ice) Skate Your Way Around Bucks County!

Lace up those skates for some frozen fun!

January is National Skate Month and whether you’re just learning to tiptoe out onto the ice or the next Tara Lipinski, ice skating is a great way to keep warm and active during the winter months (or really any time of the year!). So bundle up and get out on the ice this winter at one of these family-oriented local slabs of ice. 


Bucks County Ice Sports Center

1185 York Road, Warminster


This local favorite owned by Black Bear Sports Group is open seven days a week, though their Public Skates currently only run Fridays from 8-10 pm and Saturdays from 9-10:30 pm. Admission to their Public Skate costs $16.00 and skate rentals are complimentary, or you can bring your own. Ice schedule changes regularly so be sure to give the rink a call before you go. 


Hatfield Ice Arena

350 County Line Road, Colmar


Right on the cusp of Bucks County off County Line Road, Hatfield Ice has been welcoming recreational skaters, hockey players and figure skaters of the Buxmont area for generations now. The rink offers public skating, public hockey, as well as freestyle and private lessons for both children and adults. 


Neshaminy Creek

Tyler State Park, 101 Swamp Road, Newtown


When the weather is just right, Neshaminy Creek in Tyler State Park freezes over and ice-skating is permitted near the boathouse warming area. This may be of interest to more seasoned skaters as ice thickness is not monitored, so definitely take precautions if you do venture out. 


Lake Nockamixon

1542 Mountain View Drive, Quakertown


For the outdoor adventure seekers! Just like at Neshaminy Creek, when conditions are suitable at Lake Nockamixon (Bucks County’s largest lake) skating is permitted on the frozen lake surface. Ice thickness can be tested using an auger and should measure at least 4 inches for a single person and 7 inches for a small group.


Revolution Ice Gardens

1621 Mearns Road, Warminster


Sister arena to Bucks County Ice, The Revolution Ice Gardens is a full-service, 2-sheet ice arena located in Warminster committed to developing Hockey Players and Figure Skaters from their first steps on the ice. Here you’ll find public skate sessions, ice hockey, and learn-to-skate lessons, plus a pro shop and even a party room to throw your tween’s birthday bonanza. 


Sportsplex Inc.

1331 O’Reilly Drive, Feasterville Trevose


This little spot nestled in the Bustleton region features two rinks, ample parking and a snack stand. This indoor sports facility is also home to indoor roller hockey, soccer, basketball, field hockey and more. For more information on ice skating, call 877-217-7678. We could not find a website associated with this business so we suggest calling!
