Macy's gift to the City of San Francisco - Macy's 27th Annual Tree Lighting will take place in Union Square Park between Sutter and Post and Geary and Stockton Streets, right across from the front of Macy's.The beautiful and reusable tree will be decorated with more than 33,000 twinkling energy-efficient LED lights and 1,100 shining ornaments.
Figure and hockey skate sizes range from toddler’s size 8 to adult’s size 15. You may also bring your own ice skates.
Rent a Skate Helper for $6. For beginning skaters under 4 feet tall (48”) we offer Skate Helpers, penguin-looking tools that glide with the skater along the ice and help with balance and control. For safety considerations Skate Helpers are rented at the discretion of Rink Management. Skaters must be able to stand on their own and push the Skate Helper by themselves.
LOCKERS AND CONVENIENCES
Lockers may be rented for $3 and are large enough to hold a couple of pairs of shoes, a medium-size handbag and a few small purchases.
Bathrooms are located in the Union Square Parking Garage. Since skates may not be worn outside of the ice rink, we recommend you use the facilities before skating.
We remain open in light to moderate rain but may close in heavy and sustained rain at the discretion of Ice Rink management. No refunds or rain checks will be issued for tickets purchased at the door, but rain checks will be honored for tickets purchased online in advance.
WHAT TO WEAR
As with most activities in San Francisco, the key to comfortable ice skating in Union Square is to wear layers; the temperature on the ice may range from chilly to warm, depending on the time of day, the number of skaters and the amount of energy one exerts. Mittens and hats always help. We do sell both mittens and socks if you need them.
