Brenton Skating Plaza

Brenton Skating Plaza is Downtown Des Moines’ (DSM's) premier destination for skating, concerts and events. From November to March, the venue offers people of all ages the chance to ice skate in the open air, amid the snowflakes and under the stars in Downtown DSM. Find more ice skating information, including skate rentals and prices. Additionally, Brenton Skating Plaza offers a unique canopy from May to October that transforms the venue into more than just an ice skating rink.

Though closed for ice skating this season, check back for more updates about the 2018-2019 season!
