About Labrie Family Skate

The rink is located in the open lawn area between the Visitor Center and the Cooper Shop. The Figtree Kitchen Café will be open serving seasonal food and beverages. Plenty of free parking is available in the main lot on Hancock Street.

    I am a PHS Alumnis 1947 and thoroughly enjoy watching skating at Labrie Park. We used to play hockey years ago in Eliot on Spinney Creek . Thanks so much for this wonderful view of my Portsmouth. I’m 89 years young.
