​Welcome to Central Park Plaza for Winter Recreation!

This year-round venue in the heart of downtown Valparaiso, Indiana offers cold weather fun from mid-November to beginning of March.

William E. Urschel Pavilion

The 12,000 square foot open-air pavilion provides the perfect setting for a variety of uses. Booked with parties and markets in the warm weather months, it is converted into a hub of winter enjoyment with its 80 by 120 foot outdoor ice rink that is nicely protected from the elements under its towering arched roof. A state-of-the-art sound system for music and colorfully changing lights set the stage for a memorable ice skating experience for all ages and abilities.

Indiana Beverage Activity Center

Guests are welcomed into the Indiana Beverage Activity Center for admission to the ice rink and ice skate rental. The Center boasts tables and chairs for skaters and visitors to warm up from the outdoor elements; a concession stand with snacks, hot chocolate and soft drinks; and a conference room that can be reserved for small parties. Locker rental is available to stash shoes and other items while skating. A full glass wall allows those inside to watch the action on the ice.
