Recurring weekly on Sunday, Saturday
Lace up your skates and head to Brookfield Zoo this fall and winter season—the Zoo’s Skating Rink opens November 13. Located on the East Mall, the rink is made of a synthetic plastic known as Glice®. So even if the weather is unseasonably warm, there’s no need to worry about it melting. The 40-foot x 80-foot rink is open Saturdays and Sundays. It will also be open during the zoo’s Holiday Magic, from 3 to 9 p.m. A limited number of skates are available to rent for a $5 fee. Skaters are welcome to bring their own skates.
