Sacramento’s original outdoor ice rink, the Westfield Downtown Plaza Ice Rink, opened today at noon.
The 7,000 square foot ice rink can accommodate up to 150 skaters. The rink is located at 7th and K Streets (across from the Westfield Downtown Plaza) and is a short stroll from Old Sacramento, the State Capitol, popular downtown restaurants and light rail trains. Because the ice rink is an outdoor facility, the quality of ice may be affected by weather and other elements. Please note that the ice rink facility does not have lockers/storage and skaters are responsible for their personal belongings onsite.
Remember, as an outdoor facility, the rink may close at any time…
In the event of inclement weather, poor ice conditions, war, acts of God or other reasons beyond the Downtown Sacramento Partnership may close ice rink operations without advance notice.
Good to know. If things get out of hand with our enemies in foreign lands and it starts to go down, your local ice skating rink may close without letting you know.
In other ice related news, Iceland reopened this week in, what, 8 short months? Impressive. Rick Kushman over at the Bee also wrote an article about the frosty stuff. Wait, so did Bill Lindelof, using the same photo.
