It's been a bit of a moving target, but it's been announced that the Canal Park Ice Rink
is opening at noon tomorrow, Friday, Nov. 13.
The hours of operation as currently listed on the web site
are noon to 7 pm Mondays and Tuesdays, noon to 9 pm Wednesday through Friday, 11 am to 10 pm on Saturdays, and 11 am to 7 pm on Sundays. There are also special "Cartoon Skates" from 11 am to 1 pm on Saturdays, "Rock n Skate" from 7 to 9 pm on Fridays, "2 for 1 Tuesdays" from 4 to 6 pm Tuesdays, and "College Nights" on Thursday from 6 to 9 pm.
If you have never laced up and gotten on the ice, there are Learn to Skate lessons
, starting November 21. (Or you can be like me and hold onto the wall for 45 minutes.)
There will then be an official Grand Opening on Nov. 21. No details on those festivities as yet, but I imagine those will be announced before long.
