A place where you can skate, play bandy or ice hockey. This tag is for places where there is substantial "infrastructure" to make the skating possible. So a lake that just happens to freeze over each winter should not be tagged with this tag.

  • building=yes should be used when it's covered and the whole building is the ice rink. Otherwise, if mapped as a node, or the rink occupies only part of the building (for instance, when part of a larger leisure centre or facility), then use covered=yes.
  • seasonal=yes should be used when it is only open in the cold season.

Where the ice rink is used for professional sports, the tag leisure=stadium can be added either to the building or to the arena to include seating etc. Note that large arenas may have two or more rinks, typically a major stadium and a practice/training rink.
