Spent a pleasant afternoon Saturday enjoying winter sport, nature, and being cheap. Yes, the city rink has ice -- not fully operational yet, but still great fun. We went out in the late afternoon which is a great time as the sun starts setting. The ice has lots of smooth areas, very slick, and I can also report (unfortunately) it is hard. Oh, there are rough spots as they build the ice up, so stay alert.

Really, if you are looking for something to do outdoors that is fun and doesn't require travel try the city skating rink. The hill isn't ready, but the lower portion is.

As always, thanks to the city crew!

A thread about "Ice" started by a guy named Freese. That is funny.

Some of us remember ice skating in the bowl. in warm weather, they played football, etc and in the winter they flooded it to ice skate on. they did a good job keeping it clean and had a box car at one end so we could go in and get warm.

it was good exercise, good fun, and cheap

The ice is great.

I understand the warming house will be open this weekend, but I don't know the hours.
