Philly has a new rollerblading spot.
The Downtown District opened the Rothman Orthopedics Roller Rink in Dilworth Park on the west side of Town Hall on Friday.
The rink sports a retro-inspired design with a checkerboard floor and market lights, a colorful installation of hanging hoops designed and manufactured by the Lucky Dog Studio of Philadelphia. It will remain open until June 27.
The rink offers one-hour sessions to the public from Sunday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 8:45 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11:15 p.m. There will be 15-minute buffers between each session.
Given the growing popularity of the nostalgic pastime and the strength of Philly’s local skate scene, CCD recommends booking tickets in advance, although there may be limited ticket sales available in person. .
The price is $ 10 for adults and $ 8 for children 10 and under. The rental of roller skates is $ 5. Mondays and Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the rink hosts Matinee Skate, where admission is reduced by $ 5 for all guests.
The rink will follow COVID-19 safety guidelines, including mask requirements, reduced capacity, and improved cleaning protocols.
Sections of the Dilworth Park interactive fountain remain active on either side of the ice rink.
All programs are subject to weather and subject to change.
