Ice skating in Louisville

There are ice skating locations in the Louisville area that are open year-round indoors and others that open seasonally outdoors. You don’t have to be the best skater to have fun! Families with kids of all ages should try out ice skating for great memory-making and also, you will laugh a lot and hopefully not come out with too many bumps from your falls. And, it’s exercise so that’s not bad either. Have fun and plan for hot chocolate too!


Open year-round

Although these ice skating places are indoors, they are still cold! Be sure to bundle up and wear gloves. It’s also helpful if your items are as water-proof as possible…..if you are a novice skater.  When you fall, your pants and gloves will get some snowy ice on them that will melt and you’ll be glad your stuff is waterproof!

Also, check local coupon books, mailers, websites for discounts. We see them often!

Iceland Sports Complex– They offer several days and times throughout the week for open skating. Skating is $7 and it’s $2-3 additional for skate rental. Be sure to check their calendar before you head out.

Alpine Ice Arena– This is an older arena that I think has a throw-back charm. Admission is $6 and skate rental is $3. They do have coupons right on their website so be sure to print them and they are open daily.

Open Seasonally

Holiday in the City – Downtown Louisville has an outdoor ice skating rink during the holiday season. It opens in late November and closes end of day on January 1. Days and times vary so be sure to check their website before you head down there. Tickets are $9-$12 for 60 minutes depending on if you need skates or not. You can also get a season pass for $45. *real ice*

Jeffersonville Ice Rink – closed for the 2017 season. Hopefully they will have it again in 2018!

Elizabethtown Ice Skating – Elizabethtown has a big lights display at Freeman Lake Park and throughout the holiday season, they also have ice skating. It’s just $5 for adults and $3 for kids – skate rental included! Be sure to check the dates/times because it is not the same as the Christmas in the Park event held at the same location. *artificial ice*

Southeast Christian Church – As part of their Christmas celebration event running December 8 & 10-15, they will have indoor ice skating among other activities. It is free. *artificial ice*
