Bowness Lagoon Skate #52

The Lagoon offers plenty of free parking and a nice large wooden deck complete with gas fire pits and comfortable seating for putting on your skates. In addition you'll find heated washrooms, a restaurant, snack bar and skate rental kiosk on site. Unfortunately, the snack bar and rental kiosk are typically closed weekday evenings so you should rent skates elsewhere if required.

This is a "drop in" style event so regardless of whether you like to skate for 20 minutes or 2 hours you are more than welcome to register. Upon arrival you will find me on the main deck area until about 7:15pm. If you arrive later than that you'll find me out on the ice somewhere in my Santa Hat!
