Already an epicenter for getting together for good food and beer, The Creamery in Kennett Square is adding something to make the cold weather more enjoyable as we transition into the New Year: an ice skating rink, writes Melissa Jacobs for Main Line Tonight.
On Friday, Jan. 6, 2023, The Creamery will open an ice rink to the public. It’s 40 feet by 80 feet and can hold up 50 people at one time. Tickets will cost $10 for a one-hour sessions. Additionally, ice skates are available for rent for $4. Kids under age 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
“The fullest expression of The Creamery is when people can enjoy both the outdoor and indoor aspects of it,” said Luke Zubrod, chief of staff of Square Roots Collective, which operates The Creamery.
The rink is made of Glice, which is synthetic ice manufactured by a Swiss company. Glice is a more sustainable alternative to a real ice rink because it does not require as much energy and water, nor is it dependent on cold weather to keep frozen.
Operating hours for the rink will be Fridays from 4:30—9 PM, Saturdays from 12:30—9:30 PM, and Sundays from 12:30—5 PM. While it’s possible that it may stay all year round, skating will be available until April 2.
