Richard J. Codey Arena
The home rink for the ESC is the Richard J. Codey Arena at South Mountain (formerly South Mountain Arena) located in West Orange, New Jersey. It is part of the Essex County Parks system and located within South Mountain Reservation, the largest parkland in Essex County, and is conveniently located close to the Turtleback Zoo and the Essex County Park and Ride.
Renovated in 2005 by the architectural firm Gregory Comito & Associates, it boasts two beautiful rinks, a pro shop, skate rental area, a food concession area, press boxes, party rooms and locker rooms.
Group lessons for beginners are available and classes consist of a six week series of half-hour lessons each week with practice time following the lesson. Classes are available for ages 4 through adult. Please visit the arena office to sign up.
Private lessons can be applied for by speaking with a coach directly or by submitting this form.
Some sessions may be cancelled due to weather conditions. Members should call the arena office to verify whether any session has been cancelled.
Please note that if you must stop to drop off your child for skating, the rink requires that you pull up to the area past the crosswalk on the right to let your child out.
This is for the safety of your child and others. Officers will ticket those that do not abide by these rules.
