COVID Safety

As we continue to keep a close eye on the latest COVID-19 developments, we are working to ensure that The Winter Ice Rink Downtown Sunnyvale is safe and accessible for our guests. We will follow all county, city, state and CDC guidance and adjust our operations as needed. All visitors, ages 12 and older, to the ice rink must provide proof of vaccination. Entry requirements do not apply to children younger than 12. You can download and read our entire COVID-19 Safety Protocol here.


Skate rentals are included with the cost of admission at The Winter Ice Rink Downtown Sunnyvale.

Skate Helpers

For beginning skaters under 48″ tall, we offer Skate Helpers: penguin and polar bear guides that glide with the skater along the ice and help with balance and control. Skaters must be able to stand on their own and push the Skate Helper by themselves. For safety considerations, Skate Helpers are rented at the discretion of Rink Management.


Lockers may be rented for $5 and are large enough to hold a couple of pairs of shoes, a medium-size handbag and a few small purchases.


Free parking is available surrounding the ice rink.

What if it Rains?

We remain open in light to moderate rain but may close in heavy and sustained rain at the discretion of Ice Rink management. In the event of rink closure due to weather, rain checks may be issued.
If a manager determines that the ice is un-skateable due to inclement weather or has suspended skating due to hazardous conditions (storms, lightning), rain checks may be issued upon request as follows.

  • Rain checks expire 60 days from the date of issue and are only valid for the 2021-22 ice rink season
  • Rain checks will be issued when the ice rink becomes un-skateable due to extreme weather or dangerous conditions such as lightning, high winds or standing water on the ice.
  • Ice rink reserves the right to determine when these conditions warrant closing of the ice rink and whether or not rain checks are to be issued
  • Rain checks cannot be replaced if lost or stolen
  • Rain checks will be issued for admissions, lockers, and skate helpers only
  • Rain Checks will only be issued because of inclement weather or emergencies requiring skater(s) to leave immediately.
