Skate City starts a new holiday tradition in Sandy Springs

The City of Sandy Springs has done a great job of utilizing the City Green outside of Sandy Springs city hall and the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center. In warmer months, the City Green and surrounding pedestrian areas are filled with concert-goers, festivals, and families enjoying the open greenspace.

This year the city has come up with a great way for Sandy Springs families and visitors to enjoy the City Green when the weather gets cooler. Skate City is a 5,000 square feet ice skating rink that has been constructed in front of the outdoor stage on the City Green. 

The new Skate City rink will be open from November 24 through January 21, 2024. In addition to the rink, the Skate City complex includes a skate rental building, a concession stand, and an outdoor biergarten. Th concession stand will offer snacks, candy, pretzels, and hot dogs, plus hot chocolate, coffee, and an assortment of adult beverages. 

The rink is open until 10 pm, and operating hours will be expanded when the kids are out of school for winter break between December 18 and January 2, 2024. Guests are encouraged to purchase their tickets online, which include a specific admission time. Capacity is limited, and online reservations will be prioritized.

Admission is $15 for adults and $13 for children 2-10 years old. The price is for one hour of skating and includes skate rental. Group rates are also available.
