Maggie Daley Park Skating Ribbon: Not Your Average Ice Rink
Posted on Jan 10, 2020 by blogger
Experience ice skating through a rolling landscape at Maggie Daley Park Skating Ribbon.
The Maggie Daley Park Skating Ribbon differs in some pretty important ways from standard ice skating rinks. For starters, it's a whole lot bigger. The full loop is a quarter mile, which means you can really get in some decent mileage during an afternoon of skating. It's called a "ribbon" rather than a rink because the sheet of ice curves through a woodland park, and even though you're in the middle of the city, at times you can believe you're skating through a natural landscape.
Admission is free, and you're welcome to bring your own skates (though note that sharpening is not available on site). Alternatively, you can rent a pair of skates from the park itself for just $13 ($15 on weekends). Skate times run from noon to 5 pm Monday through Thursday, and from 10 am through 10 pm Friday through Sunday. Indoor locker space is available on a limited basis.
