Spend A Day Skating At The Pelham Civic Complex
It would be all too easy for the whole concept of “ice skating” to be lost on Southerners. After all, even if our local lakes and ponds ever did get cold enough in the winter months to freeze over, who among us would trust the ice to hold? Our winter weather is not exactly known for long stretches of subfreezing temperatures. And does anyone in Alabama even own a pair of ice skates?
Fortunately for Northern transplants who grew up on the ice – and for Southerners who love the idea of zipping around in a pair of skates with blades on the bottom – the ice rink at the Pelham Civic Complex makes it possible to ice skate year-round in Alabama.
Pelham’s Ice Arena
The ice arena is one of the most popular features of the Pelham Civic Complex, which also has a banquet hall, conference space, and catering services among its offerings. In addition to being home base for the Birmingham Bulls professional hockey team and the Birmingham Figure Skating Club, the ice arena also hosts skating lessons, parties, youth hockey, and freestyle skating.
More than 27,000 skaters of all skill levels take to the ice each year on the Civic Complex’s two NHL-size ice arenas. If it’s been a while (or forever) since you’ve laced up a pair of ice skates, hone your skills during one of the daily public skating sessions. Admission is just $7, skate rental is $2, and discounted group rates are available – making this an affordable and fun-filled way to spend an afternoon. Concessions are available at the snack bar to satisfy those who skate up a hunger. Check the calendar for public skate times.
