Strawbery Banke Museum has added a winter ice skating facility to its historic landscape. This tastefully designed venue is a significant community asset and is appropriately named “Puddle Dock Pond” for historic significance and its pond-like look and feel. It also complements the Museum’s mission to be a cultural resource and gathering place.
Puddle Dock Pond provides ice skating in a festive atmosphere and bring a joyous, community experience to the city of Portsmouth during the winter. The rink is a seasonal venue that is erected from December through February. Our goal is to bring families, skaters, and spectators to enjoy healthy, winter recreation at an affordable price.
