Oaks Park roller rink plans to reopen to skaters Monday


Oaks Park roller rink will reopen to skaters beginning Monday, March 1, under easing Multnomah County coronavirus restrictions. Multnomah County’s “high risk” designation currently allows for 50 people in the space at the Southeast Portland amusement park.

Sessions will be limited to 50 skaters, and masks and social-distancing will be required. The rink has been closed since early March 2020 except for a brief reopening in November before revisions in COVID-19 mandates quickly closed the rink.

This has been the longest closure in the rink’s 115-year history. Oaks Park officials say the rink has these claims to fame: It is the largest roller skating facility west of the Mississippi; it has survived two floods; and it’s the last rink in the world to feature a live pipe organ (normally played Thursday and Sunday nights).

Oaks Park plans increased sanitation precautions during and between skate sessions, officials say.

Tickets must be booked in advance. Visitors will have two-hour windows for skating. Sessions are $10, nonrefundable, and include skate rental. The rink will be open every day, but hours will vary.
