Skating at Pentagon Row last winter — they provide buckets to help newbies around the rink



Don’t let the cold weather stop you from enjoying some active fun outdoors. One of the best ways to take advantage of the cooler season is on skates, on ice. And you’ve got your pick of places where you can get out there and glide, both under the sky and indoors. Just about all of our local rinks are now open and welcoming the public (the one exception is Canal Park, which will open mid-December when maintenance is complete). So, if you’re ready to start showing off those spins and axels or just want to zip around the rink, here’s where you can get skate the day — or night — away.
