Parking

Recently, some Whitley Bay Ice Rink visitors have received parking tickets. Please park sensibly and within the law – do not park on the grassed areas next to the road by the ice rink, on the cricket field next door or blocking local residents’ driveways and pathways. It goes without saying that you should not park on the double yellow lines in the area.

As well Whitley Bay Ice Rink’s car park, there is a free car park behind Hillheads Road, between the ice rink and Foxhunters Trading Estate. It is one way entry from the ice rink end but two way from the Foxhunters Road end.

We also have an agreement with the Whitley Bay Islamic Cultural Centre & Masjid, behind the ice rink (formerly Whitley Bay Residents Association Club). They have kindly allowed people attending Warriors matches to use their car park free of charge.
