Ice Skating

Indoor Skating

Manchester has two indoor skating rinks, John F. Kennedy Memorial Coliseum, and West Side Ice Arena.  JFK offers public skating, skate rentals, private rentals, and a snack bar.  West Side Arena offers Stick & Puck and private rentals.   Public skating is generally offered on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and Saturday and Sunday afternoons at the John F. Kennedy Coliseum, mid September through March.  For a calendar, click on the links above. Both arenas provide plenty of free parking.

Private Ice Rentals are offered at both facilities. To book ice, please call (603) 624-6444.

Outdoor Skating

Weather permitting, Dorrs Pond in Livingston Park is cleared of snow, making a delightful outdoor skating venue free of charge. There is a Warming Hut adjacent to the pond where patrons can use the restrooms and warm up by the wood stove.

Please call the (603) 624-6444 to find if the ice is considered "safe to skate on."
