Ice Skating in Cape Town

Come rain or shine - ice skating is a must!


The Olympic-sized ice rink at Grand West Casino is a very popular facility. The Ice Station rink is open to the public and ice skates can be hired.

Whether you want to organise a party or just want to go skating with one or two friends, the ice rink is a whole lot of fun.

The Ice Station is a non-profit organisation doing their best to develop the youth of Cape Town in the various disciplines of ice skating and of course to provide a recreational service at low prices to the public.

Remember to bring a change of clothes if you will be skating, and warm clothes are advised, even if you are just there to watch.

There are various figure skating clubs operating from The Ice Station. These clubs are all affiliated to the South African Figure Skating Association (SAFSA).

Ice Station is situated within the Grand West Casino complex on Vanguard Drive in Goodwood.
