Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist?
Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed.
For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?
Why no option for Outdoor rink?? Rockefeller center or Bryant Park for instance?
It's almost that time again. Have to go at least once or twice every holiday season
I grew up with the Miami-Erie Canal right behind my house. Could skate for MILES...
if its cold enough, my backyard
Indoor arena for me.....Breaking through ice, and being swept away by a current used to keep me up at night. such a horrible way to go
My dad used to build an ice pond in our back yard every winter where I used to pretend I was either Bobby Orr or Peggy Flemming. Loved it. Also, I once visited Central Park and skated at the Wollman rink. That was really cool. There is a small outdoor rink in Detroit called Campus Martius which I have not yet visited. However, I like the ideas of the outdoor rinks.
Note that all those rinks I mentioned are not on lakes that one can crash through. I've always had a fear of that. So, for the choices above, I'd go with the indoor rinks.
When I was younger, I would always make small rinks on my patio in my backyard. No more than 20 feet long but it was fine for my size.
I grew up on a lake. Definitely MY favorite place to skate! Still love going home during the winter to skate my old routes

Not to be snarky or anything, but wouldn't that count as a public park?

Around here the small lakes and ponds in public parks are cleared to be ice rinks in the winter. That's how I interpreted it.
Well, there are plenty of NHL arenas that could be pretty nice for skating on now.
No option for skating a river? or a canal as mentioned above?
What about flooding the backyard!?
Skating the sidewalks and parking lots after a bad ice storm? (a couple of inches at least)
Whoever made this pole was definitely not from the far north.
