just a few outdoor rinks left. kids dont want to use them anymore. bringing up a generation of children who are computer game savy but have few life skills.

Sure hope that the kids will get out and enjoy all the work that goes into maintaing these rinks. Boy, back in the day we were skating all the time and now the kids have a great place to warm up even. Gosh my son even works security at one so the kids have a safe place to enjoy.... I say to parents strap on the skates and get the kids moving !!!

Kids still use these rinks all the time. It's a great past time. Even better now that they have the security.
