Ice skating photo With February school vacation coming up, ice skating is a perfect winter sport to get the kids outdoors. DCR has plenty of sites that offer public skating hours and skate rentals to facilitate the whole experience. Some locations, such as the Kelly Outdoor Rink in Jamaica Plain, offer lessons on Saturdays. Check out DCR’s list of rinks.

Ice Scating Rink

Always err on the side of caution, even at a designated skating area. The Department of Fish and Game has a handy guide on ice safety. You can impress your friends with your newfound knowledge on the dangers of white vs. blue ice.

DCR has plenty of sites that offer public skating hours and skate rentals to facilitate the whole experience. Many rinks also offer extended public skating hours during school vacation week.

The photos are from DCR’s Kelly Rink in Jamaica Plain.
