Had a day to kill some time so I went ice skating and the ice was very refreshing to skate on. The rental skates did hurt my feet so next time I'm going to bring my own pair.

We take out nephews there every other week and it is a fair price for ice time and skates. We have also been to several birthday parties there and have had a great time.

This is the university's rink, but I'm happy they let outsiders putter around in here too. Yay! My kid had never been to an ice rink before.

Went today for there open skate. It was 8 for adults and 6 for kids. They play good music and the staff is friendly. Wish the open skate was more than a hour and a half. Other than that it was pretty fun.
