Hit the ice (until early March)

February 20, 2008

Everyone seems to be looking for signs that winter is almost over, and I have a good one for you: Local outdoor ice skating rinks will be shutting down for the season soon — March 3 for most of them. The next 10 days are a good chance to check out one of the lesser-known rinks below (’cause you probably haven’t been to any of these except Steinberg, have you? 🙂 )

  • Cahokia Ice Rink, 200 Cahokia Park Drive, 618.337.9521. Public skating sessions are available certain afternoons and evenings; admission is $4 a person, with kids under 5 in for free; and YMCA members get discounts.
  • Granite City Ice Rink, Wilson Park at 300 Fehling Road, 618.877.2549. Public sessions are Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays; admission is $4 for non-resident kids, $5 for adults.
  • Florissant’s James J. Eagan Center Ice Rink, 1 Civic Center Drive, 314.921.4470. Public sessions are offered daily; non-resident kids under 5 are free, kids under 17 are $3 and those older are $4 (resident rates are lower).
  • Steinberg Skating Rink, Forest Park, 314.367.7465. This granddaddy rink is open pretty much all day and evening (except Mondays) for public skating. Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for children 12 and under.
