Since December 6, the open-air ice rink at Rainier III Nautical Stadium has been accessible to people with reduced mobility, thanks to the availability of two eisgleiters, skating platforms equipped with gliders on which wheelchairs can be installed.

On Wednesday, February 21, two beneficiaries of the Association Monégasques des Handicapés Moteurs were able to enjoy the sensation of gliding across the ice in the presence of Deputy Mayor Jacques Pastor, Delegate for Sports and Leisure, and Arnaud Giusti, Head of the Municipal Services for Sports and Associations.

The 1,000 sqm skating rink will close for the season on March 12. During the school holidays (from February 24), it will be open Monday to Thursday 10 am to 6 pm, Friday and Saturday 10 am to 11 pm, and Sunday 10 am to 9 pm.

Skaters young and old, as well as people with reduced mobility are all welcome, especially with snow and minus temperatures in the forecast next week. Tickets cost €6.70 or free for children under 5. Helmets for kids are available on request from staff.
