The city of Winter Park introduced an outdoor ice skating rink in 2009 entitled “Winter in the Park” during the Christmas Season and has now made it an annual event. The ice skating rink will open on Friday, November 15th, 2013, through Sunday, January 5th, 2014 in the West Meadow section of Central Park along the shops of Park Avenue.

Ice Skating in Orlando
A few years ago, the only option for ice skating in Orlando was to visit the inside rink at the RDV Sportsplex in Maitland. Disney had outdoor ice skating at Downtown Disney in the marketplace for several years followed by the Gaylord Palms a few years later when they introduced their ICE! event but both have since been discontinued.
However, what didn’t work at the Gaylord Palms and Disney World has been very successful locally in east Orlando with the city now having two places for outdoor ice skating with Winter in the Park and Light Up UCF at UCF, who introduced an outdoor ice skating rink in 2008. In addition to the ice skating rinks in east Orlando, the City of Celebration also has an outdoor ice skating rink setup as well.
