Roller Skating Birthday Parties
Due to Covid-19, this option is not available at this time. We are, however, allowing roller skating rentals during our private party rental time. Please call or email the SPARC for all other rental questions or requests.
Once we are able to add our regular public skate sessions to the schedule, this will be available again. We hope this will be in the Fall/Winter of 2021!
See the flyer below for the information about our Birthday Party Roller Skating Package.
Large Private or Public Event Rentals
Please contact the SPARC Coordinator directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for large private or public event rental opportunities.
South Peninsula Athletic and Recreation Center (SPARC) provides a unique setting for community events and recreational activities for all ages. To ensure the safety of our patrons and in order to maintain and preserve the facility the following policies will be strictly enforced. Reservations will be guaranteed when a signed RENTAL REQUEST FORM is returned to the SPARC and a confirmation email is issued.
The SPARC is an 11,000 sq. ft. facility designed for recreational use. The following fees will be applied for rental use:
– $60/hour (1 hour minimum) — For non-profit events
– $100/hour — For profit events + deposit
For events, like birthday parties, where SPARC equipment is being used, and management deems it necessary for a staff member to be supervising (much like a lifeguard at the pool) an additional fee of $25/hour will be applied.
At this time we do not let renters use our roller skates except during designated Skating Parties, held during our regular public skate sessions. This restriction is because of; (1) the limited number of skates and, (2) safety concerns without experienced skate guards present. Please contact SPARC staff to reserve a Skating Party.

SPARC does not have any food preparation or storage areas. Food is allowed in entryway in proper storage containers. No food or beverages are allowed on gym floor. Water bottles are allowed with lock tops. If food or beverages are found to be on the gym floor, an additional fee may be charged to the renter. No consumption of alcohol, tobacco or other controlled substances is allowed on SPARC property, and all regulations in place at Kenai Peninsula School District facilities fully apply to the SPARC property.
SPARC does not provide event staffing except in the event of a birthday party, or other event where children are present and using SPARC equipment.

It is the responsibility of the event coordinator to see that all guests adhere to the times specified in the rental agreement. Activities beyond the parameters of the agreement may result in additional charges.
