Ice Arena

The Thornton Park Ice Arena is where many Shaker residents take their first steps on the ice and then progress as recreational skaters, figure skaters or hockey players. 

The Ice Arena is open year-round for lessons, open skates and hockey leagues. The Ice Arena is also the home ice for the Shaker Figure Skating Club, the Shaker Heights High School hockey team and the Shaker Youth Hockey Association.

Learn-to-Skate Program
Thornton Park Ice Arena is proud to offer learn-to-skate group lessons under the U.S. Figure Skating Basic Skills Program, the most widely used and nationally recognized skating education program. Group lessons cover basic skills, figure skating, and beginning hockey for all ages. Classes offered and class schedule vary seasonally. Please see our seasonal recreation brochure for details. Private lessons available. For additional Learn-to-Skate information, contact Chelsea Carlson at 216-295-3461. 

Private Learn to Skate Program
Our professional staff of ice skating coaches are available to instruct private lessons to skaters of all ages and skill levels. Private lessons are conducted during open skate sessions and are designed to improve skating skills for figure skating or hockey power skating. Lesson length and price vary and individuals are responsible for paying the instructor directly. Skaters taking a private lesson are required to pay the City of Shaker Heights for ice time and skate rental, if needed. For more information, please call 216-491-1295.
