    Absolutely love this place. Such a great place to let loose..whether it's by skating, roller skating or roller blading. It's always fun times. And I love how they rent the footwear and gear. So everyone can go.

    The oval is a great spot for some wintery fun in Halifax - free of charge! The only thing you need in order to borrow a pair of skates is a valid photo ID. The quality of the skates you recieve will vary, and if you need comfortable stakes to have fun I'd recommend you bring your own. My one complaint is that there is no indoor area to put on your skates, so you're stuck outside with frozen fingers trying to tie them. Overall a great spot for an outing on a budget.

    Can say enough good things about this place. Family friendly and free: Not only the ice but the rentals also. Great community resource!
