About Labrie Family Skate

Labrie Family Skate is a carefully designed ice skating rink with 12,500 square feet of professionally maintained ice surface surrounded by a post and rail fence. The design combines an 80’ x 125’ oval with a 60’ diameter circle abutting the oval. This will be all one sheet of ice. The rink is located in the open lawn area between the Visitor Center and the Cooper Shop. The Figtree Kitchen Café will not be serving seasonal food and beverages this year. Plenty of free parking is available in the main lot on Hancock Street.
