Sacramento Downtown Plaza Ice Rink
The Sacramento Downtown Plaza Ice Rink has been a seasonal landmark on The Kay for over 20 years, providing a playful escape into a winter wonderland for kids and adults alike. The City of Sacramento established the rink back in 1991 and soon after the Downtown Sacramento Partnership assumed operation and management of the rink with the goal of creating a signature holiday experience for the region.
Situated in the heart of Downtown, at the corner of 7th & K streets, the ice rink is the premier location for outdoor skating and shopping at the Sacramento Downtown Plaza and Old Sacramento.
The Sacramento Downtown Plaza Ice Rink is a seasonal ice rink, open annually from November to January. We feature weekly theme and discount nights such as Neon Night, Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, Family Skate Night, as well as special concerts and fundraisers. With skate and locker rentals conveniently provided on site, let the Sacramento Downtown Plaza become a part of your holiday tradition.
Sessions start when the rink opens and every 2 hours thereafter. (For example, 2pm, 4pm, 6pm.) Basically, if it is an even hour, a session is starting! Skating sessions are 1 hour and 45 minutes. This may not sound like much, but its a long time on the ice, trust us! When the session ends staff will clear the ice for 15 minutes while the Zamboni makes a sweep before the next session starts.
What happens if I arrive after a session already started?
