19 Ice Skating Rinks Around Rochester

There are several options when looking for ice skating rinks around Rochester, NY. It first depends on whether you own your own skates or need to rent. All indoor, plus a few outdoor rinks, have skate rentals available.

It also depends on your preference for indoor or outdoor rinks. Indoor rinks are consistently maintained and shielded from the weather, also making them great all year. Outdoor rinks are open to nature and the elements, both a blessing and a curse, and can be more free-form without all of the crowds. Indoor rinks have bars and bathrooms. Outdoor ice skating rinks tend to be free with typical park hours. Indoor rinks share ice with hockey, so public skate times may not work with your schedule.
