Experience it!

Oly on Ice is now open! The 2022-23 season of Oly on Ice runs through January 16 and we have tons of special events scheduled throughout the season.
  • Tickets may be reserved online at Peak days & times fill fast (like weekends and holidays), so we highly recommend using the online option to ensure you’re able to reserve your preferred time. You can also purchase a Season Pass to skate the whole season long!
  • Tickets may also be purchased at the ice rink, but quantities may be limited, or you may have to wait a bit to skate until the next available time.
  • We also have gift certificates and beanies (new design!) for sale down at the rink that make great holiday gifts!  
Our last few weeks of Fall Recreation Programs start soon (look for the Winter-Spring Catalog in early December).  
Need a place to host your holiday party, meeting, class or event? The Olympia Center and Harbor House are here to meet your needs. Give us a call at 360.753.8380 for more information.
