Outdoor Recreation Awaits at the Fort Dupont Ice Arena
You want to plan some winter fun, but the DC weather can be so annoyingly unpredictable. Keep it icy but still convenient at the Fort Dupont Ice Arena in nearby Dupont Park. This skating rink offers plenty of open-skate sessions for a few wintry whirls around the ice, along with lessons and leagues for lots of bundled-up entertainment. Chances are you haven’t been able to pry away the kids’ devices since the holidays, which makes the Fort Dupont Ice Arena a great option. New skaters can try their hand at the sport with the Learn to Skate USA program. Each 25-minute session includes skate and helmet rentals, along with admission to an upcoming open skate session to test out their new skills. It’s an opportunity to see if your little ones have a knack for ice skating, and a necessary requirement for more advanced skate-based sports.
