Oaks Park Roller Rink in Portland’s Sellwood neighborhood closed when Oregon went on lockdown from the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year, but that will change soon. On Wednesday, November 4, the rink reopens with limited operations five days a week.
The new hours are:
Wednesday-Friday, 2:30-4:30 p.m., 5-7 p.m., and 7:30-9:30 p.m.
Saturday-Sunday, noon-2 p.m., 2:30-4:30 p.m., 5-7 p.m., and 7:30-9:30 p.m.
Tickets must be purchased online, and the capacity is limited to 45 people per session. Because of the safety guidelines in place to prevent the spread of COVID, only ticketholders can go inside the building.
On Thursday and Sunday nights, Keith Fortune and Marc Gerlack will play music from the Great American Songbook on the beautiful antique Wurlitzer pipe organ. Oaks Park Roller Rink is the only roller skating rink that continues this tradition.
The Skate Shop is open by appointment. Skating classes are cancelled until further notice.

The rink is part of Oaks Amusement Park, the last of the trolley parks still open in the Pacific Northwest and one of the oldest continuously operating amusement parks in the United States. The park opened on May 30, 1905.
The park is located at 7805 SE Oaks Park Way in Portland, a 10-minute drive south of downtown (get directions).
