I’m excited to tell you that the much needed refurbishment of the Sprinker ice rink is finally finished.
The grand re-opening is this coming Saturday, the 28th (Note that this is a new date-the original was postponed due to the ice storm. I know….ironic). There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by a special public cheapskate session at 11:45. 5.50 a person includes admission and skate rentals. You’ll also have the chance to answer trivia questions to earn discounted admission. Mascots will be on hand to mingle with the kiddos. I’d make the kids wear helmets, but I’m a bit of a nut about head protection.
If you’re a big fan of skating, you may also want to get tickets to Sprinker’s upcoming show, Reflections on Ice. They’re on sale now.
If this isn’t in your area, there are also ice rinks in Bremerton, Kent, and Renton. If this sounds a little too slippery for your crew-or you’ve just had enough of ice for a while-maybe you’d like to check out my roller skating list.
If you’re one of my readers with preschoolers or tots, don’t miss the other news from Pierce County Parks about their new indoor playground program in Lakewood.
