Winter Wonderland Fun At Centennial/Piedmont Park

With these warmer temps, are you ready for a winter wonderland?

Starting November 19th,  you can skate like you’re Sasha Cohen at Centennial Olympic Park. The rink features covered seating, theatrical lighting, real ice and holiday music. I’ve always wanted to do a triple axel (in my very creative dreams) so now I think I’ll take the plunge. At least hold on to the sides and skate along. 🙂

They’re open Mon-Fri: 4:30 to 10 PM, Sat: 10 AM to 11 PM and Sun: 10 AM to 10 PM. Admission is $7 per person and skate rental is an additional $2 for 90 minutes of skate time. The rink is open daily, including holidays, from Nov 19, 2011- Jan 29, 2012. Lockers are available for $1, at the ice rink to securely store belongings.
