Holiday ice skating glides on in Sacramento, Folsom

Clear, cold weather this week makes it a fine time to check out one of the Sacramento region’s holiday ice skating venues. The downtown Sacramento ice rink at St. Rose of Lima Park, near the Golden 1 Center, has been a holiday tradition for almost a quarter-century. It operates through Jan. 16. Admission is $12 and $6 for children under 6. Discounts are available for Western Health Advantage members, RT riders and others. The rink is open from 2 to 8 p.m. on weekdays, with longer hours on weekends. Check its website for further details.

In historic downtown Folsom, a circular rink is open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. with $12 admission ($10 for those under 8) and skate rental for $3. The rink’s website offers additional information.

The Global Winter Wonderland at Cal Expo offers free skate rental with the purchase of $12 admission for 45 minutes of skating. It’s open daily until Jan. 2 and again on the weekend of Jan. 6-8.
