James Walker
James Walker: Open for skating from Wednesday through Sunday, admission fee required, with a discount offered for military and seniors. A special day and time is reserved for the sport of Curling. Located on Wharf Street Southwest between the Anthem and the Transit Pier.
Matthew Henry
Matthew Henry: Probably one of the most beautiful rinks in DC. You can hear the geese and birds, see the water and smell the food. Very enjoyable place.
Matthew Rusch
Matthew Rusch: It was super fun for me and my family. The cost was about the same as other ice rinks and you can skate for a long time if you want to. It had a great atmosphere right on the water and the staff was super helpful. It is a little smaller than a regulation ice rink for hocky, but not to bad.
Stefano Negri
Stefano Negri: Pretty bad treatment for my 3 kids last year - good to see it is open for review now so that I can say this They made us pay in full for 15 minutes after having told us we would have a full hour. Felt cheated and there was not even an apology, let alone a reimbursement. Not going back.
M: It was a beautiful little rink with string lights hanging overhead and water surrounding it. I give 3 stars because it was a little pricey. $38 for 2 people.

Darian Smith
Darian Smith: What family had a great time in this ice skating rink. The price of the rental skates are very affordable. The skating rink is a nice size plenty of space to sit in the bleachers and watch people skate or sit down and change your shoes you will have a great time there
Mary O'Brien
Mary O'Brien: Fort Dupont is a wonderful place to skate! It is an extremely welcoming environment and there are good, clean rentals available. Overall, I highly recommend.
I SLAY ALL DAY TRAVEL The Solo Traveler: Perfect place! It’s hidden gem nestled away in Washington, D.C.
NUALA OLEARY: Needs updating. Across a parking lit from a beautiful baseball facility sponsored by the Washington Nationals. It would be wonderful to have an updated rink sponsored by the Washington Capitals.
Jennifer Jay
Jennifer Jay: If you grew up with rinks built in the 80s/early 90s this place will feel like coming home. Yes it’s dated but that’s part of the charm and they are breaking ground on a new rink soon so enjoy it while you can. They offer free learn to skate to DC residents in 2nd thru 12th grade, it’s a rink you can feel good about spending your money at. The giant windows and natural light make this rink even more special, fabulous skating under the sunset glow.
Greg Pryzby
Greg Pryzby: great resource. if you live in DC there are free classes on Saturday.
Ms. DC
Ms. DC: Now this Ice Skating Rink brings back memories I remember my friends and I.would hook school and hang out here. We.use to like to watch the hockey players while school were in session. Until they caught on we were hooking school then they stopped letting us in or we would meet up there and go to the movies.

Canal Park Outdoor Ice Skating & Splash Park: what do users think?
E P: Great place to skate, parking was easy when we went (Sunday late afternoon), but I can see how it could be an issue in busier times. Rink is well maintained, and you can rent skates if you need. Great area for coffee or restaurants around.
Response: EP, thank you for your review and rating. Parking is always available in the vicinity of the rink. These ratings mean a lot to the staff to see returns on their efforts. Thanks for your visit skating with us. Best, Lance
Kelsey Elle
Kelsey Elle: This place seems like it would be fun but it’s actually extremely dangerous. It’s too crowded for how often they cut the ice and as a result the ice is extremely rough and in poor condition. What makes it even more dangerous is that the rental skate blades are not adequately sharpened. Skating on rough ice with dull skates is a recipe for disaster even for an experienced skater. I have skated my entire life and was a competitive figure skater and even I felt unsafe skating here. We saw many people get injured during the hour that we were there, including a member of our group. If you have your own skates it would probably be okay, but on the whole I was very troubled by what I encountered here, and the disregard for safety.
John Griffis
John Griffis: Very Fun! Skates in fairly good condition for a rental. Ice maintained pretty good for an outdoor rink in 50° weather too. All in all it was a fun time.
Danial Gebreili
Danial Gebreili: The ice-skating experience at this location is fantastic. The skate rentals are pretty decent and properly maintained. Overall, the staff are friendly, prices are reasonable, and it is not crowded making for a fun experience with friends, couples, or family.
A R: Really fun! We went on a Monday evening and it was fairly quiet with only about a dozen other people there. There is a lot of space to skate and a fun little passage to skate through too! Highly recommend
Sean Shechtman
Sean Shechtman: Cool rink shaped like a figure 8. Also good pizza, hot chocolate and coffee. Great place for kids because it has outdoor rink with indoor food/beverage when you are cold.
Nadine De williaams
Nadine De williaams: Fun spot. Not crowded. Had a cafeteria to grab some snacks. 2 hours for $15 including the skates.
Timothy Albright
Timothy Albright: The rink staff are very approachable and were willing to assist my child in his first time skating, last year. The shape of the rink allows for more enjoyable experience, compared to a conventional ice rink. The pizza place is a warm place to sit when the Zamboni is on the ice, but there are many other good food locations nearby. Since the change in management, my family has purchased season passes yearly. Great winter spot!

National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden Ice Rink: what do users think?
CB: Cute rink but bad customer service and inaccurate hours of operation. The rink “sells out” of skates very quickly and stops renting out skates (when stocked) at around 7PM. Unless you plan to go as soon they open or you decide to wait an unknown period of time, you likely will not be able to enter. I have tried to go on two different occasions within a few days, hours before closing, and was refused entry/rental both times. We ran into several other people while leaving who experienced the same. In previous years, this rink was great, but they are not operating their best since the pandemic began. Would advise going to Georgetown rink instead
M Munoz
M Munoz: The only time I was able to skate at this rink was when I went around opening time, at 11AM. That’s the only reason I am rating one star. Any other time at night, I was turned away on multiple occasions. They always say that they’re sold out even if I’m there hours before their listed times. Misleading and unprofessional, especially since skaters were leaving as I had requested for a rental AND the person directly in front of me was able to get skates. There’s no structure or consistency in this rink’s operation. Save yourself the trip and go elsewhere!
Kate Bellows
Kate Bellows: I went here a few weeks ago, and we had so much fun! Very busy, so if you can go in the middle of the day during the weekday, that’s for the best. And pack light, because it’s hard to avoid not getting a locker unless you just want to leave your stuff out.

Emilie K: I’ve gone ice skating here six times now, it’s such a great time! The staff is nice. It rink isn’t exactly large, but fun place to go for an hour or so! Decorated nice around Christmas time
Kel Millionie
Kel Millionie: A little ice skating rink with skate rentals and adjacent restaurants. Ice is well maintained and the timed tickets didn’t make the rink over crowded.
Maritza Cooper
Maritza Cooper: What a lovely setting for this outdoor activity. Pentagon Row is a wonderful space to to have an outdoor rink. Lots of restaurants, shopping and people watching. The staff at the rink are fabulous. Ethan, both Olivias, Cartrell and Julian were FABULOUS as usual. Been here numerous times and its always a pleasure. They keep a watchful eye out and are vigilant in their duties. Bring Gloves, warm clothes, long socks and a fun attitude. Be sure to tighten the skates around the ankles to avoid injury. Lots of newbies on the ice, so try not to run them over. Most important of all.... HAVE FUN!
Response: Hi Maritza, Wow! Thank you for the awesome review! We will pass your kind words along to Ethan, Cartrell, Julian and both Olivias. They are incredible employees and we are lucky to have them! We are so glad that you had a great experience at our rink, the staff works hard to make every visit a 5 star experience. Thank you again for the great feedback and pictures, we hope to see you again soon! Best, Bryton
Jennifer Stehle
Jennifer Stehle: It may have just been the time of day we went, but there were many children on the ice without supervision, skating across the rink or in the opposite direction of the group. There was no staff on the ice making sure the rink was safe for guests either. This is very dangerous. Skating is always "at your own risk", but many rinks take their rules seriously and ensure their guests are safe.

MedStar Capitals Iceplex: what do users think?
Andrea Cox
Andrea Cox: Been skating at Kettler for years. Med Star takes over and decreases the public skate time by a 1/3 while doubling the price. They also make you jump through hoops by creating an online portal and signing your life away just to come skate for an hour on Saturday night. RIDICULOUS!!!
Anthony Alatis
Anthony Alatis: Great to be able to watch practice. Leaving the parking lot took 10 minutes with only one attendant in 1 of the 6 payment lanes.
Jacques Bertrand
Jacques Bertrand: Very nice locker rooms, good ice as well. Only complaint is that the game usually have to be curfewed. I think they should have reserved spot for referees, so they will be more enticed to come.
Vaibhav Gupta
Vaibhav Gupta: Great place to ice-skate. The staff is really friendly. And if lucky, you can catch the caps practicing here. We had a great time here.
Todd Berman
Todd Berman: Aside from the 8 stories of winding parking garage - there is much to like at Kettler. Skate rentals, food concession and of course, the Stanley Cup Champions home practice ice. Come for a relaxing skate session or to see the Caps practice. Convenient to Metro and parking is a bargain!
Bill Rizzo
Bill Rizzo: Two rinks, for hockey on Friday nights. The Arlington Rink is better for spectators as you can sit in "box-like" seats and watch the game. Parking is a buck for three hours! Pay before you leave or use a credit card at check out booth.
Alyx Barnes
Alyx Barnes: My son and I both skate at Med Star Caps Iceplex as part of the figure skating program. The rink takes significant precautions both on occupancy and cleaning protocols to keep skaters and staff safe. In this time of the pandemic, masks are also mandatory on the figure skating rink and in the facility overall. Hours for figure skating are somewhat reduced most Fall/Winters due to the Caps need for the ice, but if early mornings work for you, there is generally ice time to reserve. Reservations are made via the OpenSports or Dash apps. Classes and individual lessons are available. My son completed the Basic skating lesson series here and now does Sky High for more advanced figure skaters. He also participated in some of the Summer figure skating camps, which are offered for various ability level skaters. He has really enjoyed his skating journey so far and this is largely due to the wonderful coaches (Mary Clamp and Connor Tasker, to name two) and fellow skaters on the ice with him. This is our go-to rink in the area. Great people and well maintained facility.
Anna Shumaker
Anna Shumaker: My review is based on the public skating. The facility is clean and well maintained. However, the skate guards are not very friendly or helpful. They mostly skate around ignoring everyone else. As an obvious beginner, I would have appreciated being asked if I needed any help, some tips and tricks, or at the very least a greeting. The atmosphere was not very welcoming. I felt like an inconvenience rather than a guest who paid money to be here.

Andrew O
Andrew O: Great place to ice skate year-round. There are several public skating sessions per week and they offer beginner and advanced classes for kids, teens, and adults. The teachers are excellent and many participate in one on one sessions outside of class as well.
Andrea Silver
Andrea Silver: Came skating with my family on Saturday and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff was all smiles, friendly and seemed to be enjoying their jobs. Having no idea about skate sizes, we wound up exchanging skates three times before finding some we could get our feet into( thanks Zane and Aliana!). Then we needed help tying them and Heather helped us with that. Loved the atmosphere- felt like a family run rink and it was obvious that everyone was having a good time. Kudos to management.
Gabriel Gualteros
Gabriel Gualteros: Good place to take family or adults for indoor ice skating...clean a good value and lots of fun.Can get busy plenty of parking....wear a helmet!
lovelyslyons: So patient with my lil one which was her 1st time. Loved that they treated us with such kindness and answered question before I got there on the phone and when I got there in person.
Y Fessehaye
Y Fessehaye: Great place for lessons and fun! Love it
Michael J. Ferreira
Michael J. Ferreira: The more I go here, the more it feels like family. The staff is courteous and positive. Classes are excellent. The only concern I have is that a class begins at the same time the previous class ends. If there are any hiccups and a 30-minute class may lose 20% of class time. This, however, does not outweigh the benefits at all. Great place to go!

Jack Reacher
Jack Reacher: Ice is patchy as hell and they clean it very rarely. Customer service is also lacking. The guy I was talking to literally left me hanging mid-conversation. If you’ve got kids, don’t do it as well — a kid fell and was audibly crying because he hurt himself. In other places there’s usually an employee on the ice to tend to these situations, but they had no one on the ice. There was an employee on the outside and he watched the kid cry for a while before he decided to intervene after all the guests stopped skating to check. Seriously, save your money.
Christian Mukete
Christian Mukete: I got here all the time during winter, sometimes crowded, sometimes not. But overall love place and they’re restaurants nearby and a whole imax theater so this is perfect
Karen Lopez
Karen Lopez: Small rink and tends to be crowded but always a fun time. Great for people of all ages! Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Kaylin Hunzicker
Kaylin Hunzicker: Fun if you’re a kid sure, but if you’re older actually trying to skate get ready to spend your entire time avoiding children pushing penguins. They go fast as hell and can’t stop and you have a 9/10 chance of wiping one out. I’ve seen it. Other than that the rink is also pretty small (which makes avoiding the penguin children even harder) but overall it’s alright. Little on the expensive side.
Erin McGuire
Erin McGuire: Last night for outdoor skate this season and rink is lovely!

Jack jack
Jack jack: Excellent customer service. I highly recommend coming here to buy ice skates! We were about to buy ice skates from another location but we came here because we heard about their excellent customer service. They did not disappoint. Their customer service exceeded expectation. They were very patient and pro active. They took the time to measure feet and ask questions to determine the best pair of ice skates. They even put together the blade protector. The level of care and concern they showed towards making sure we bought the right pair of ice skates was awesome! We will definitely be back and will probably sign up for lessons at some point.
Yulia Evseeva
Yulia Evseeva: Bad ice, dirty, and useless staff. Very dirty, everywhere! Immediately as you enter, an unpleasant smell is felt. The ice is of a poor quality, it seems to be straightened with the help of a special machine, but this does not help to get rid of the holes in the ice. There are lockers, but they are one-time-use, you cannot use them many times in one period, or rather you can, but for extra money, they close for 2 quarters, and every time if you need to take something and close, you need to make sure that you have coins. Rent skates are stink very strongly, here you will NOT be given shoe covers that you must wear before putting on your rental skate and they will not process the skates afterwards. Disgusting. They do not have a support for children, racks on which children who do not yet know how to ride can lean on. On the ice, there are staff who seem to be supposed to manage the process and help people if they need help, but there were two guys who were rolling in a circle and talking to each other, not paying attention to the visitors. I did not find anywhere information and at the checkout I was also not warned that I could not go on the ice in my shoes to help my child learn to skate (I myself do not stand well on the skates). There is a manager who was hired to say one phrase "we have such rules, rules are rules"
Brooke :p
Brooke :p: Amazing ice arena! Is always clean workers and super nice! I come here for ice skating and all teachers are amazing! There is also a food cafe with amazing food! Sometimes a little crowded but amazing ice skating but rank and skate patrols skate around the rank to see if everyone is ok and not falling 100% recommend this ice arena
Animal King
Animal King: I went for the 4th time trying to give this place a chance, but its a very dirty rink. Second you walk in it smells like sweat and trash. Rink has massive holes to the point you trip. They cut the ice ONE TIME in the morning for stick and puck. One time I felt I was skating on actual snow. The locker rooms smell horrible, they dont supply pucks, and only two goalies free. Other rinks dont charge for any goalie. Furthermore the pro shop is never open, we need to sharpen our skates too. Overall, the place has potential but at the moment its not good. Will not be returning.
Noah Kim
Noah Kim: If you’re an entry level skater, it’s a decent place. For literally anyone else, it’s not worth it. It’s an old rink that is questionably maintained, ice is of lower quality, has a moldy smell at times and limited facilities. With Kettler, Reston, Prince William, Fort Dupont, St.James. There is very little reason to come here over the superior options in the area.
Gregory Lynch
Gregory Lynch: They still have a strict mask policy for people who are by themselves and not around anyone else. I was kicked out for that reason. The hockey players and the refs don’t have to wear masks even though they’re the ones not social distancing. It’s a shame, I liked this place but illogical policies like this make it hard to support.
Ryan Dodd
Ryan Dodd: The place is pretty run down but I had a ton of fun going to a free skate session in a Wednesday night. I used their skates and it was not too crowded. The ice was kinda rough.

Kawaii Rabbits
Kawaii Rabbits: Website needs to be updated. My local rink is open all year but no public sessions on Wednesdays, so thought I check out Wells. The employees looked at me so crazy because I came to ask if the ice rink was open--the website says the ice rink is open "365" and there are hours listed. Additionally, I wish they wouldve at least mentioned if they still do roller skating here, but the employees seemed generally confused.
Donna Hershey
Donna Hershey: We had lots of fun! Not too crowded and only $4/person Wednesdays 12-2pm
micharoni: not open, waited 30 minutes and no workers showed up ! had at least 30 people waiting and everyone knew they were supposed to be open at 9:30.
Response: Hi Micharoni. Thanks for taking time to review the Herbert Wells Ice Rink. We understand your concern and we apologize for the inconvenience. If you are referring to saturday february 26th, was not possible to offer open skating from 9:30pm. We had been impacted on finding enough staffing to cover and keep the facility open during that time. We will continue working hard to have the appropriate staff to continue offering the best service. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the director at Thanks.
Taylor Frazier
Taylor Frazier: Great lesson for my 2.5 year old. Her instructors were awesome & even though we missed a few classes, she was able to keep up.
Keith C.
Keith C.: Great place for kids hockey. Unfortunately when we went out warmed outside which caused condensation on the glass making it hard to see.
Steph Y
