Ice ice baby!

Fountain Ice Skating Rink

Yes, its winter. Yes, it’s cold. But don’t let that stop you from getting out and having some fun! Several towns in the area have ice skating rinks for you and your family to get outside this winter season and not only have a good time as a family, but to get some much needed after-the-holidays exercise.

Ice skating was very popular with kids before the invention of the computers, video games, and cell phones. Years ago children would meet at the ice skating rink in their hometown with a few of the kids bringing their parents’ thermos full of hot chocolate to share in the “warming shed” during a break from the cold (and hard) ice. Once their clothes were dry and their bellies warm the kids would go back out and play on the ice again. Be it playing an actual game of some kind, or just whirling around on those razor-sharp blades, the kids forgot about the cold and just enjoyed being children.

The Fountain Fire Department recently assembled an ice skating rink at the baseball field in Fountain, Minn. This is something new and exciting for the residents of Fountain. Hopefully everyone will get out and enjoy the new ice skating rink on these bright, sunny January days and find they have so much fun that they continue to use it the month of February as well.

The City of Chatfield has an ice skating rink for everyone to enjoy as well. The rink is located at Mill Creek Park in Chatfield, Minn. The ice skating rink is smooth, shiny, and ready to go. The Street Department puts the rink together and gets it ready for the public to use. Not only does the City of Chatfield offer an ice skating rink but they also have a hockey rink right next to the ice skating rink. Ice hockey is played on the rink regularly with many people gathering and knocking sticks. Having two ice skating options is great when some in the family would rather be more active and play hockey while others may want to practice getting that figure eight move down pat.

Another option for ice lovers is Rushford, Minn. There is an ice skating rink for those looking for a different view from the ice. The rink is located in Rush Creek park in Rushford. Slip on your ice skates in Rushford where the rink has been built, filled, and prepared and is now ready for action.

So this winter try something new, or get back to something you love, by enjoying the ice rinks in our area. You never know, it could become a treasured family .....
