RMPD Public Skate

Reminder: Make sure to check our Public Skate calendar for any black out dates or schedule changes. Starting in June we will only be holding Public Skate on Friday evenings from 8-9pm and Saturday afternoons from 12:30-1:30pm. This schedule will stay in place through August.  

***ATTENTION***
Please read below for all Phase 5 Public Skate rules and regulations
Phase 5 Public Skate (updated 6/11/21):

1.) Fully vaccinated individuals will no longer be required to wear a mask. For the safety of everyone involved with Public Skate, we ask you all to please be mindful and continue to wear a mask if you are unvaccinated. 

2.) Masks are still required for unvaccinated individuals as well as children ages 12 and under.

3.) There are currently no more capacity restrictions for Public Skate.

4.) Dibs are no longer needed to attend Public Skate. We will be operating entirely by walk-ins. We do ask that large groups contact us ahead of time to ensure we have enough staff and rental equipment to accommodate everyone.

We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
