(Dublin, Ohio) — The City of Dublin is excited to bring a brand-new, temporary ice rink to the Riverside Crossing Park this winter. The 3,200-square-foot rink is situated at 6635 Riverside Dr. in the lower plaza on the east side of The Dublin Link pedestrian bridge.
Normal operating hours for the ice rink are as follows:
- 5 to 9 p.m. Fridays
- Noon to 9 p.m. Saturdays
- Noon to 6 p.m. Sundays
- Closed Mondays–Thursdays
Continue to check back for the latest hours. The ice rink will be available through mid-March 2022.
“It wouldn’t be winter without taking a spin on the ice,” Director of Parks & Recreation Matt Earman says. “The new rink adds a touch of festive fun to the Downtown Dublin area under the perfect backdrop of The Dublin Link.”
Admission is $10 per person and includes complimentary skate rental. Skaters are welcome to bring their own skates, but the admission rate ($10/person) remains the same.
Only contactless payments such as debit and credit will be accepted. The vendor does not accept cash for this attraction.
Skate rental is included with the $10 admission. Skate sizes available to use are size 9 child up to size 13 adult. Skaters are also welcome to bring their own skates, but the $10 admission still applies.

Ice Rink Operations
The Riverside Crossing Park ice skating rink is managed and maintained by Out of the Box Enterprises, LLC. The rink is outfitted with cooling equipment that is capable of operating in temperatures of up to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Crews will resurface the ice daily using a Zamboni.
The rink will close if skating conditions are unsafe, including excessive rain, extremely warm temperatures or poor driving conditions in and around the city. Visitors can view in real-time if the ice skating rink will be open by visiting the City’s website.
Coffman Park Ice Rink
In addition to this new attraction in Downtown Dublin, the City of Dublin manages an ice skating rink at Coffman Park, 5200 Emerald Parkway. This rink, however, is more sensitive to the weather and needs consistent freezing temperatures to maintain an icy surface for skaters. The Coffman Park ice rink is open weekdays from 3 to 8:30 p.m. and weekends from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. If there is no school, the rink is open from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., weather permitting. Skate rentals are not available, and hockey is not permitted. Ice skating is not permitted on Dublin ponds. Check to see if the Coffman Park rink is open.
