Outdoor skating at Centennial Olympic Park

If you're looking for something fun to do with the family this weekend, head downtown to Centennial Park for outdoor ice skating. About 15 years ago I was in Toronto in the winter, downtown, and came across an outdoor rink there -- the Canadian equivalent of Rockefeller Center. I skated, and it was really memorable. The one here is covered by a tent, since here in the south the sun could do some melting damage during the day. Not quite the same, but as close as you'll get in Atlanta.

The Centennial rink is open through Jan. 4, 2009.

Now celebrating its 10th anniversary season, Atlanta’s only outdoor ice skating rink at Centennial Olympic Park is an annual holiday tradition. Visitors enjoy covered observation seating, theatrical lighting on the real ice and holiday music. Admission is $7 per person for a 90 minute session; skate rental is an additional $2.

Here's a tip - take dry clothes if you plan on skating before the Thrashers game. One fall and you will be soaked.
