The Cuddy Family Midtown Park Skating and Fitness Oval is a great place for fast, fun and family skating. Click here for current weather conditions at the oval. Click here for information from the Municipality of Anchorage Parks & Rec Winter Ice report.
You can help support Anchorage Skates. Please make a tax-deductible contribution to the Alaska Community Foundation’s AnchorageSkates! Fund to help pay for ice maintenance and to support new projects at the oval. It costs more than $16,000 per season to keep Anchorage’s oval ice nice.
AnchorageSkates! raises two-thirds of this money from skaters and other private contributors. Contribute at least $15 to get your annual AnchorageSkates! pin . . . to show that you support nice ice. And now, you can buy a pin at Alaska Mountaineering and Hiking!
Anchorage’s Cuddy Family Midtown Park Skating and Fitness Oval is one of only six Olympic-sized speedskating ovals in the United States. The 400 meter oval is three lanes wide and its asphalt surface is great for summer inline skating.
Visit the ice skating conditions forum for local ice updates and related discussions. Depending upon weather conditions and event schedules, the oval is generally resurfaced on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday mornings.
Access the oval by going either west on 40th Avenue from A Street or east on 40th Avenue from C Street. Both routes end at cul de sac parking areas.
Cuddy Family Midtown Park features pond skating on its east side and the skate oval on its west side.
