While this indoor rink is often used for hockey games and figure skating practice, the Staten Island Skating Pavilion shifts its focus to offer a few public skating sessions throughout the winter. The regulation size means there’s plenty of space to learn to skate, and the rink offers lessons for all ages through Learn to Skate USA, an organization endorsed by US Figure Skating, USA Hockey, and US Speedskating. Check the website for special events throughout the holiday season, like hot cocoa skating sessions or opportunities to hit the ice with Santa or the Grinch.
