Fairfax Ice Arena offers a great environment for those wishing only to have a good skate, either alone or with a group. The facilities are rather spartan compared to other arenas, though the rink itself is of pristine quality. Vending machines are the sole food facility, and the arcade machines are quite dated. A small skate store is operated, too. Single skate sessions, multiple sessions, and group passes are all available, and both hockey skates and figure skates are available for additional charges. The rink is often closed for hockey leagues and figure skating lessons, so check the open skating session times in advance.
