Happening Now at Veteran’s Plaza: The Silver Spring Outdoor Ice Skating Rink
January 11, 2019
One of the perks of the winter temperatures is that you can enjoy cold-weather sports, like ice skating. If you haven’t laced up a pair of ice skates yet this season, there’s no time like the present to check out the Silver Spring Outdoor Ice Skating Rink at Veteran’s Plaza.
The rink offers rental skates for anyone who doesn’t have their own pair, as well as skating lessons if you’re a bit rusty. But if you’re ready to head right out and hit the ice, just check the schedule and head to the rink. It opens most days at noon, except for the weekends, when it opens earlier at 10 a.m. And it remains open until at least 10 p.m. every night (midnight on Fridays and Saturdays), which means you have plenty of time to skate. Since the ice skating rink resides right in Veteran’s Plaza, you can easily grab a bite or a drink nearby after your skating session. Admission is $9 for adults and rental skates are $5.
