National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden, Ice Skating Rink

Ice skating season is here! At the Sculpture Garden Ice Rink at the National Gallery of Art, families, couples, groups of friends and skilled solo ice skaters enjoy the rink throughout the day and night.  Both tourists and locals fill the rink in the center of the park with a 360-degree view of the garden, surrounded by artistic sculptures.

The rink has a jolly feel as ice skaters do laps to the beat of holiday tunes. Skate rentals and two hours on the ice costs only $11.  All levels of ice skaters are welcome.  While many hit the ice with their bums, others spin at high speeds at the center of the rink.  It is surely a fun winter event for all to enjoy!
