Kyle and Samantha Gandee were expecting friends to join them for an evening of ice skating on January 7 at the temporary outdoor rink in Riverside Crossing Park in Dublin, but instead, the Columbus couple ‘Olde Towne East enjoyed an impromptu evening.

“Our friends were supposed to be with us,” Kyle Gandee said, but they were among the growing number of people who contracted COVID-19 as the latest variant of the virus caused a further rise in the number of cases.

It was the first visit to the Dublin Ice Rink for Kyle, 31, and Samantha, 30, who said she learned about it from her colleague, who lives in Dublin.

It was also the couple’s first ice skating in three years, said Samantha Gandee, who learned to skate on a pond at her parents’ home in Mount Gilead.

“It’s funny; we will be back,” she said.

Justin Johansen and his son, Vincent Hyghland, 9, skate on January 7 at the rink.

Matt Rush, 36, of Dublin, was at the rink on January 7 with his wife, Wendy, and their children, Jackson, 9 and Lyla, 6.

“I grew up skating (on an ice rink in Cleveland Heights) with my grandfather, who took me out skating with his friends,” said Rush.

As her son, Jackson, moved skillfully on the ice, using the skills developed playing ice hockey at the Chiller indoor rink in Dublin, Lyla took the opportunity to develop her balance on skates.

“She’s finally getting used to it,” Rush said.

Another first-time visitor came from Westerville to try out a new pair of ice skates.

“I wentogle ‘the outdoor rinks in Columbus’ and found this,” said Katie Vance, 27.

Vance said she liked being outside because “it feels more like winter.”

Six-year-old Rajveer Dhillon gets help from his mother, Ella, putting on her skates before heading to the rink.

The Jan. 7 skaters had plenty of room to move on the ice, but that’s not always the case.

There are times, including the week between Christmas and New Years, when all of the rental skates are in use and none remain available, said Taylor Sara, district manager for Out of the Box Enterprises LLC, owner of the temporary ice rink.

The ice rink opened on December 17 in the park, 6635 Riverside Drive, and is located in the lower plaza on the east side of the Dublin Link pedestrian bridge.

The 3,200 square foot rink is normally open hours from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Friday, 12:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Saturday, and 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Sunday.

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) – The opposite of “hot yoga”, a kind of “cold yoga”, has kicked in at the 401 Park rink and will continue every Sunday this winter.

Dubbed “IceFlow,” the program began to offer participants the opportunity to practice basic skating movements while stretching, breathing and sliding to the sound of music.

“We use our breath, connect our breath to our movements, and we inhale joy and light things that fill us and serve us. Then we breathe out whatever we don’t need to wear,” Elin said. Schran, IceFlow teacher at JoySkate Productions. According to Fenway.com, Schran has been teaching IceFlow yoga for 15 years, with a positive, non-judgmental approach aimed at making people feel welcome to skate in their comfort zone.

Schran said typical yoga poses like “down dog” or “Shavasana” were not practiced because of the ice under yoga enthusiasts.

“It’s not about jumps and twists,” said Debbie, a Needham participant, “it’s just about being here, being in this moment, enjoying the outside world and being very. here.”

ROCKLAND – It’s a New England rite of passage to put on a helmet and put on your ice skates when the temperatures drop, something Brian Magner taught his 3-year-old daughter on Thursday afternoon.

“We’re going to bring our stroller,” he told Lulu, helping her put on her pink training skates and caged helmet.

A Rockland resident, Magner said it was her daughter’s second time playing on the ice. The week before they took another trip and she was on the ice for a few minutes with her father, he said.

“I just wanted to give her a positive experience,” he said as they both prepared to step onto the ice at Rockland Rink for Thursday morning free skating time.

REGION – Warm weather affected the opening date of an ice rink and a popular winter activity was canceled for the second year in a row.

“We hope to work on setting up (the rink) on Wednesday,” said Jennifer Savage, deputy director of the Farmington Parks and Recreation department, on Monday, Jan. 3. “The ground must be completely frozen. The tarp we are using (under the ice) has heated the ground. It’s the first week that it’s been pretty cold.

Other rinks in the area don’t use a tarp, Savage said. The goal is to open the Farmington rink in mid-January, she added.

For hours of operation or more information, people should follow the ministry’s Facebook page or call 778-3464.

In Weld, the Mt. Blue State Park headquarters rink in Center Hill is open, park superintendent Bruce Farnham said on Monday.

“We won’t be having Take It Outside Family Winter Fun Day this year,” he noted. “The ski slopes will be groomed when there is enough snow. “

For years, Take It Outside had taken place on the first Saturday in February but was canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The yurt near the rink will be open with a fire to warm the skaters and skates are available there, Farnham said. Depending on the weather, the rink is open seven days a week and a light switch on the pole can be turned on for night skating as long as it’s off when it’s time to leave, he noted.

For more information, visit the park’s Facebook page.

The Kineowatha Park ice rink in Wilton is also open, Parks and Recreation Director Frank Donald said on Monday.

“Unless the sign is posted, people can skate at any time whether the heated cabin is open or not,” he noted. “The lights are on every evening until 8:00 p.m.”

The cabin’s warm-up hours are 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and noon to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Skates and walkers to help new skaters can be used free of charge when the hut is open. Crisps, hot chocolate and candy are available for purchase.

“We were busy over the Christmas holidays,” Donald said. “We had at least 35 to 40 people a day on average. I hope to spend the February holidays, from mid-February to the end of February if the weather permits. Sometimes this is not the case, we have to close before the February holidays.

For more information or to see if ice maintenance has temporarily closed the rink, call 645-4825 or visit the Facebook page.

The Eddington municipal ice rink was open yesterday. Yes!

It will be closed today due to warm temperatures and expected rains.

The work will continue and these hard-working ice makers and ice packers will be doing their maintenance and the rink will reopen very soon. Go ahead and plan the weekend to go skating.

For those new to the rink, they had a vision, they raised funds and the Eddington Municipal Rink is a reality. Thanks to all the hard workers and sponsors for making this possible.

The rink is located at the Eddington Municipal Office, 906 Maine Road.

And man is that something!

So channel your inner figure skater or hockey player and plan to get out and use the rink this winter. Skating is a great family event.

Once the ice conditions improve and they expect it to be within a day or two, two-thirds of the rink will be reserved for skating, and the other third will be reserved for batting. and the washer. For those unfamiliar with the stick and puck, this is exactly what it sounds like. Take hockey. And yes, they will soon have hockey nets. He shoots. He scores!

The best plan is to check out the Eddington Ice Rink Facebook page for daily updates on ice times and conditions and other information you might need to know.

But the plan is to be open every day from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. It will be Stick and Puck only from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Saturday skating only, no Stick and Puck.

Keep in mind that times can be changed, so it’s best to check the Facebook page before you set your plans in stone.

And being a longtime pickup, stick, and puck player, let me pass on the rules (which were made with me in mind.)

  • No alcohol
  • No food or drink on the ice
  • No verification.
  • No slapping.
  • No blasphemy. Even if you fall and go boom.

Helmets are recommended, especially for young skaters.

I have a Bobby Orr sweater from his junior years before I turned pro with the Bruins. And yes his number was 2, not his familiar 4. It will be me. Do my best to remember the last rule from the list above.

And anyone interested in skating or playing hockey is reaching out, we’ll form a group. There are options everywhere for skating.

Welcome to the Eddington municipal ice rink!

As the clock struck 1am on Saturday afternoon, a steady stream of skaters slid across the ice under the east pavilion of Headwaters Park.

For some, skating on New Years Day is an annual tradition.

That’s why Antwerp, Ohio, resident Paul Bauer and a family friend brought their sons on Saturday. Bauer said he has been skating on New Years Day since the rink opened 19 seasons ago. He also skates throughout the season.

“It’s fun watching them do the moves and seeing them fall and get up,” he said of the boys. “Every year they get better and better.”

The rest of Saturday afternoon, Bauer said, would be spent playing football. It was nice to spend the first part of the day with outdoor activities, he added.

“Our women take our girls out for manicures and pedicures while the guys do guy stuff,” he said. “After that, we’ll all meet up at Coney Island.”

For others, it was the first time they had put on a pair of skates. Joey, a Decatur resident, and his girlfriend, Sapphire, who declined to share their last name, were in Fort Wayne for a New Years party Friday night and stayed on Saturday morning to try something new.

“I try not to fall on my face,” Sapphire said with a laugh.

On their first outing, the pair said they enjoyed the experience, although they said their favorite aspect of skating at Headwaters Park was probably hot chocolate.

While New Years Day at the rink isn’t an annual tradition, Columbia City resident Becky Thompson has always loved ice skating. She, her husband and their three teenage children decided to skate on Saturday as a fun family outing to start the New Year.

“We used to live in Fort Wayne and go down, but it’s just been a long time,” she said.

Thompson added that she skated for years and even taught lessons for a while.

The 2021-22 winter skating season has been a success so far, despite lingering concerns about the pandemic, Geoff Paddock, director of the Headwaters Park Alliance said on Saturday.

Since the rink opened in late November, the park has hosted more than 16,000 skaters, he said.

“We are seeing phenomenal numbers,” he said. “We had record numbers on some days with over 900 skaters” during skating hours.

The park has experienced occasional staff shortages, Paddock said, adding that so far there have been no issues filling those gaps. He said rink staff have been diligent throughout the season to monitor security and adhere to COVID-19 protocols.

Bauer is grateful that Headwaters Park continued to open the rink despite the ongoing pandemic.

“These kids need something to do that is not at home during the lockdown,” he said. “I think it’s fantastic for the kids and for the families, and I hope they continue to do it.”

What there is to know

  • Paséa Hotel Huntington Beach
  • Until January 2, 2022
  • $ 30; Home and living packages are also available; book your time and date in advance

Engage in an authentic and memorable way with the Pacific?

This can be done by pursuing so many delicious, entertaining, and very wet hobbies.

You can swim, of course, or put your toes in the nearest wave, if that’s your preference. Surfing is a popular choice, bodyboarding is loved and going out on the ocean by boat? People really do that.

But the truth is this: Putting on a pair of ice skates in Southern California and attempting to slide across the nearest ocean surface is a plan best left out.

For the Pacific, at least around those parts, remains wonderfully humid, making winter water-centric activities rather difficult (except, of course, the famous New Years Day polar bear dives).

Placing an ice rink near the Pacific, however, is a happy response to this situation. And that’s exactly what the Pasea Hotel in Huntington Beach has done, giving sand, sun and scarf lovers an effervescent outing that combines the beach and cold-weather whimsy.

The ice rink will be open until the New Years weekend, if you’re looking for another sunny way to celebrate the holidays before closing the season book.

You’ll need to reserve your day and time before you go, and tickets start at $ 30.

There are also a few packages, including the Stay & Skate. Booking a fire pit is a possibility, and there are treats to savor, including hearty entrees like fried butternut dumplings.

And, of course, the must-have hot chocolate, which is always good to sip by the ocean, good to sip on an ice rink, and good on an ice rink next to the ocean.

The 2021-2022 holiday season saw fewer seasonal rinks in Southern California, but this attraction adjacent to the hotel has kept the holiday vibe and vibe going throughout December, and now in the first two days of January as well.

“Skate + Chill Where Sand Meets the Snow” is the vibe of this stylish place, which gives lovers a chance to ice skate near the ocean, as skating the ocean in Southern California must forever remain a waking dream.
