Spectacular Ice Rink at Letchworth Outdoor Pool

The pop up ice rink at the Letchworth Outdoor Pool officially opens its doors for the very first time on Saturday 23 November.

Stevenage Leisure Limited (SLL), who operate the Outdoor Pool on behalf of North Hertfordshire District Council (NHDC), has introduced Skate Letchworth, a state-of-the art ice rink to the centre. Spanning an impressive 20 metre by 10 metre space and covered in real ice, the rink is located on the terrace and will run until Sunday 5 January 2020.

Tickets are bookable via SLL’s website, https://www.sll.co.uk/skateletchworth, with adult tickets costing £10.00 and child tickets £7. Family bundles are also available. It is possible to turn up and skate, but this will depend on space being available and you are strongly advised to pre-book to avoid disappointment.

Skate Letchworth is perfect for a variety of ages and abilities. Child skate aids are available to hire, subject to availability, to help children experience the ice. It’s also a great evening activity for adults with the rink staying open until 9pm, so round up your friends and head down to Letchworth this winter. Whether it’s your first time on the ice or if you’re a seasoned pro, you won’t want to miss this. The cafe will be open, with a range of festive hot food and drinks on offer.

Richard MacSweeney, Manager of the Letchworth Outdoor Pool at SLL, said: “We are very excited to be running the ice rink at the Letchworth Outdoor Pool for the first time this year. We have really enjoyed working hard behind the scenes with NHDC to bring a skating experience to the community this winter and look forward to getting underway on Saturday.”

Vaughan Watson, NHDC’s Service Director for Place, said: “The ice rink is the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit and to entertain the family over the Christmas holidays.  We anticipate interest will be very high and expect dates to sell out rapidly; you’ll need to get your skates on to ensure you don’t miss out.”

Visitors are recommended to dress appropriately for the weather. Thick socks, gloves and waterproof clothing are highly recommended.
