San Mateo On Ice is a seasonal ice skating rink constructed in the baseball diamond of San Mateo's Central Park, offering family-friendly ice skating from November through January. Skate rentals are available on-site. The rink has a tent with heating units available for guests to warm up between stints on the ice, and it has a small concessions stand that dispenses munchies and beverages. San Mateo On Ice is family-friendly and has "Skate Buddies" available to rent for kids: These are devices kids push in front of them like a walker while they skate, helping to prevent falls while learning the ropes. Abundant parking is available in downtown San Mateo.

For some fresh air without having to leave town in the winter, San Mateo On Ice makes for a fun family outing.
