The atmosphere truly gets you in the holiday spirit. The event was efficient and well maintained. Lots of families with inexperienced skaters, so beware, but not to worry. They have plenty of staff available to keep everyone in line. Dress in...continued

We enjoyed Ice Skating. Luckily, we went a Thursday, so there was no wait and the rink was not very busy. The only downside about skating in the park is that the rink is very bumpy and they only zamboni it at the end of the night.

More Information


Enjoy ice skating under the stars – and palm trees – at one of the most breathtaking rinks on the planet.  Where else can you spin and glide under clear skies and swaying palm trees that twinkle at night? 

Head to Downtown Ice in downtown San Jose and experience for yourself why more than 45,000 skaters spin around the one-of-a-kind circular rink in the Circle of Palms Plaza each holiday season. Located in the heart of downtown at 120 S. Market Street, between the San Jose Museum of Art and the Fairmont Hotel, the rink is at its best after dark when lights twinkle off the 32 palms and stars shine from overhead.

There are no lockers or secure storage on site. Please do not bring valuables to the rink. There are no restrooms once you enter the ice rink, so it is recommended that you use the facilities located adjacent to the rink, in the plaza area, prior to entering.

Downtown Ice is a San Jose Downtown Association production.
