The Camden County Freeholder Board is bringing the Winterfest Ice Skating Rink at Cooper River Park back at twice the size to provide family fun from Nov. 27 to Feb. 14.
“Come to the three-day grand opening celebration featuring free performances, a tree lighting ceremony with caroling, giveaways, refreshments and much more,” said Freeholder Jeffrey Nash, liaison to the Camden County Parks Department. “This year, in addition to doubling the size of the rink, we have added carriage and carousel rides, and are offering ice skating lessons to get you out on the rink.”
The 60 foot by 120 foot ice rink will be located in the center of Cooper River Park’s Jack Curtis Stadium located at 5300 North Park Drive in Pennsauken. The park will be transformed into a winter wonderland with twinkling lights in the trees, and vendors selling soft pretzels, hot chocolate and other tasty treats.
The Winterfest Ice Skating Rink at Cooper River Park will be open Monday through Thursday from 4 to 9 p.m., on Friday from 5 to 10 p.m., on Saturday from noon to 10 p.m., and on Sunday from noon to 9 p.m.
There will be four free ice shows each week: Friday at 7 p.m., Saturday at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m.
Children 4 years of age and younger will be admitted onto the ice for free. There is a $3 admission fee for kids 5 to 12. Admission for adults is $5 and a $3 skate rental fee for all ages. In addition, there is plenty of free parking in lots to either side of the stadium. Visit www.skatewinterfest.com for information on skating lessons and more.
