Lovely! Ice Skating Will Return To Lubbock In Time For Winter
Although I grew up primarily in Lubbock, I did spend a couple of my childhood years in Spokane, Washington. Spokane had a large and lovely ice skating rink, and I got pretty good at the basics- I could skate forward and backward and do simple spins with ease. I loved the feeling of zipping through the rink as fast as I could. I also loved getting exhausted and enjoying a hot chocolate afterward.
Imagine how I felt when we moved back to Lubbock, and there was no such thing for me here. At first, I was devasted, but like most kids, I adapted- and picked up a pair of rollerskates.
Lubbock did get an ice rink- the one used for our hockey team The Cotton Kings. I happily skated there a few times when the rink was available for the public. I'm still disappointed hockey fizzled out here- it was quite fun to watch.
Do you long to ice skate? Luckily for us, we will have the opportunity this year.
Adventure Park is bringing in a temporary rink for ice skating this November and December. If you're worried about it being too hot and melting- don't be. This rink will be made of synthetic ice. Participants must rent skates from Adventure Park or have their personal skates approved for the "ice". Adventure Park will offer a wide range of sizes- Youth Size 8 to Men Size 15, so chances are pretty good you'll find your fit.
