Lead text
In winter time you can slip on your skates and enjoy some lovely winter exercise. This winter you can enjoy free skating on all artificial ice rinks around the city. In the winter season, skating is completely free of charge on all artificial ice rinks and fields of the City.

Safe distances must be kept at outdoor sports facilities, and people are allowed to use the facilities only when healthy. 

As it is so early in the season not all artificial ice rinks and fields are yet open. But this season you will be able to enjoy ice skating at Brahenkenttä, Oulunkylä, Jätkäsaari, Kontula, Lassila, Pukinmäki, Käpylä, Laajasalo and Lauttasaari. In this winter season, skating is completely free of charge on all nine artificial ice rinks and fields of the City, and unpaid public skating time slots are available, but do check the individual websites of the ice rink you wish to visit. This year, however, there will be no artificial ice field in Rautatientori.

Oulunkylä Sports Park

The artificial ice rink at Oulunkylä Sports Park is situated in the place where Finland’s first trotting track opened in 1884. In wintertime you can skate there, enjoy hot drinks and snacks in the café and even have your skates sharpened.

Brahe Sports Field

“Bragu” or “Braku” is a popular sports field in Alppiharju that is transformed into a huge artificial ice rink in wintertime. One half is reserved for regular skaters and the half for ice hockey. Next to the ice rink there is a café where you can also sharpen your skates and rent skates, sticks and helmets during the cafés opening hours. There are also vending machines for drinks and snacks that can be used whenever the ice rink is open.

Käpylä Sports Park

Käpylä Sports Park was originally a trotting track for horses that opened in 1926, and races were held there all the way up to 1976. The infield was made into a football pitch in the late 1940s, and in the 1950s popular skating events were held there in wintertime. These days the sports park has both an artificial ice rink and an ice hockey rink. Skating sleds are available to help children and beginners stay on their feet!

Kontula Sports Park

Back in the 1910s, when the owners of Borgs Farm in Mellunkylä began selling land to smallholders, Sven Juselius acquired Mustikkasuo (Blåbärskärr) Farm and began cultivating 11 hectares of fields. On those same fields can be found today Kontula Sports Park. The kiosk at the sports park has the same opening hours as the skating rink.
