Winter in San Francisco wouldn’t be the same without gliding across the ice with family and friends at the Safeway Holiday Ice Rink in Union Square. A destination for San Franciscans and visitors alike, Union Square is one of the most treasured locales in the country, making it the premier location for outdoor holiday ice skating. Under sparkling lights and among the bustle of holiday shoppers, celebrate the season at the Safeway Holiday Ice Rink in Union Square.
Rent skates for $6. 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.
