Winter will be here soon and you can already feel it in the air. My family enjoys going to Maple Grove to go ice skating at Central Park. Central Park has a ice skating loop that is super fun and worth checking out in my opinion.

Central Park Ice Skating Loop is a great way to get out and enjoy a beautiful winter day and get some exercise. You can skate this loop for free but you do need to bring your own skates. If you don't have any, you can rent some there. Also, if you get chilly you can sit and warm up by the fire.

The loop is 20 feet wide and 810 feet long, the perfect size to skate alone, with family or friends. For the hockey lovers in your family, ice games are not allowed. The ice skating trail is a great way to learn to skate or practice skating this winter. That is one of the first places my daughter went ice skating. It’s extremely family friendly and great for all ages.
Next time you make your way to Maple Grove make sure you pack your skates. It would be fun with kids, a perfect winter date idea or if you just want to get out and get a little exercise.
