Group Outings

Skating is a wonderful way to enjoy the outdoors during a lovely New England winter. Bring your corporate or school group, or just a bunch of friends, to enjoy a few hours away from the hustle and bustle. The rink is located in a beautifully landscaped plaza with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby.
General & Corporate Groups, Parties, Etc.
Aerial view of the skating rink in Kendall Square. For general group skating during our regular hours, no reservations are required, but we'd love to talk to you about it! Give us a call at (617) 492-0941. We can accept groups of up to 80 during regular skating hours.
The rink can also be rented for private functions.
Catering is available during both private functions and public skating. Indoor catering is available during private functions. During public skating, due to space limitations the food will be set up outside in our landscaped courtyard.
