Oulunkylä artificial ice rink.

Eight artificial ice rinks and fields available for skating on Saturday – user number restrictions apply

As of Saturday, 5.12., all artificial ice rinks and fields of Helsinki save for one in Jätkäsaari will be available for skating.  Due to the coronavirus situation, maximum rink and field-specific skater numbers have been specified, which can lead to queues in the busiest hours. The changing rooms and service buildings will be closed except for the toilet facilities, which means that skates must be put on on outdoor benches.

It has already been possible to enjoy skating on the artificial ice rinks and fields of Oulunkylä, Kontula, Lassila, Pukinmäki, Käpylä and Lauttasaari, and on the coming Saturday also the artificial ice rinks of Brahenkenttä and Laajasalo will be opened to the residents. In this winter season, skating is completely free of charge for the first time on all nine artificial ice rinks and fields of the City, and unpaid public skating time slots are available on each day of the week. Information on the opening date of Jätkäsaari artificial ice field will be provided later. This year, however, there will be no artificial ice field in Rautatientori.
