Take the Family to Skate at Royal Oak’s New Outdoor Ice Rink

About The Rink

The Rink at Royal Oak, located in Royal Oak’s world-class urban park, is a family-friendly ice rink that accommodates up to 250 skaters at a time! While skating at Centennial Commons, Visitors can count on fire pits to roast marshmallows, along with two unique “firehauses” for gathering by the fire. Warming units also will be in place and for those who need indoor shelter, the Royal Oak Public Library will be an official warming station for The Rink during its open hours.

Downtown Royal Oak has a large mix of diverse dining and bar options within walking distance of The Rink that visitors can enjoy before or after their time on the ice rink, from casual to fine dining and everything in between. 

“A significant reason M3 Investment Services calls Royal Oak home is the tremendous sense of community here,” said Mike Pesendorfer, CEO. “When approached about the opportunity to support the new rink in Centennial Commons, we jumped at the chance. It’s the perfect family-friendly winter spot to come together, as well as a special attraction that will encourage people to support our downtown retailers and restaurant, too, while also adding to the seasonal ambiance of downtown Royal Oak and building holiday and winter memories that will last for years.”
