There will be a dedicated locker room, pairs of figure skates and skating aids available to ensure residents are fully equipped and make the most of their time on the ice.
Environment and Recreation Executive Member Cllr Parry Batth said: “I am delighted to announce that an ice rink is coming to Cantley Park – a first for Wokingham. Cantley Park provides the perfect backdrop to our party activities, supported by the new recreation facilities we have recently opened to complement the residents’ active lifestyle. Come show us your eight and have fun dancing on the ice – it will truly be an unforgettable White Christmas!
“There are a lot of festive activities going on in Cantley Park this winter, including our very first Christmas Market which runs from November 24 to December 24. We will have outdoor huts adorned with festive garlands with scalloped lighting and a variety of local vendors selling arts and crafts and delicious food. The event is free, so save the date, hop off to buy Christmas presents and grab some ice cream. Everyone is invited, the more the merrier!
