Summer at the Skate Center

Audrey Miranda | Assistant Director of Marketing May 15th, 2024

As North Texas temperatures start to climb, the coolest place for fun and recreation is the Galleria Dallas Ice Skating Center. The acclaimed skate rink has hosted dozens of Olympic medalists and famed figure skaters from across the globe.

Galleria Dallas opened in 1982. During the opening, Olympic Champion Dorothy Hamill performed for the Dallas community. Since then, the Galleria Dallas Ice Skating Center has had more Olympic Champions and athletes perform than any other venue in Texas.

This summer, skaters of any ability can find fun and festivities while keeping cool. Planned activities include skate camps and lessons, themed skate parties and more.
