Parking in Colonial Williamsburg area
There is hourly street parking around Merchants Square, and there are public lots around CW that are free for an hour but but be careful, because the City of Williamsburg is ticketing pretty robustly and fees get steep after the first ticket (they go up to $300 per ticket). It is easy to get more than one ticket with the spaces only being 1 hour. To be safe there is a paid parking garage on 230 N Henry St, Williamsburg, VA 23185 – it is a $1/hr with a $12 daily max or download the Passport App and pay for parking through your phone.
However, if you have Colonial Williamsburg admission – including Good Neighbor Passes, park at the Visitor Center and catch a ride in one of their heated buses that will drop you off just down the street. Or you can park at New Town or High Street shopping centers and take the Williamsburg Trolley in to Merchants Square for some added fun!

Would like to if you don’t ice skate do you still have to reserve to enjoy other activities
You can come to Merchants Square and be outside the rink without an ice skating pass. There are shops, and food. You can purchase a ticket to Colonial Williamsburg and then go through the Art Museums and the trades house!
