Time to hang up the skates


The City of Evanston's three outdoor ice skating rinks are now officially closed for the season, thanks to the relatively mild weather we've had in recent days.

Typically, the outdoor ice skating season runs from December to February at the rinks at Ackerman Park on Central Street at McDaniel Avenue, the lagoon at Dawes Park on Sheridan Road at Church Street and Baker Park on Forest Avenue at Keeney Street.

But residents can still skate indoors at the Robert Crown Ice Complex at 1701 Main St.

Ice skating is available on the main rink 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays. And its available on the studio rink 4:30 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. on Mondays; 6:15 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays; 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Fridays; and 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays.

Admission is $6 and skate rental is $3. The annual skate pass is $100. For more information, call 847-448-8258.
