At Kirkwood Ice Skating Rink, skaters etch thin whiskers onto the frozen face of a year-round indoor rink that houses five locker rooms, a warming area, and other ice-indulging amenities. Kirkwood's calendar offers up 90- or 120-minute public-skating sessions daily, welcoming all types of frozen-water walkers regardless of age, ability, or Abominable Snowman genealogy. After grabbing a pair of rental skates, strap them on near the heat billowing from the warming area's ventless fireplace, before gliding onto the glossy wintry pane to share the same arctic air as Olympic stars, former NHL players, and other heralded athletes from the rink's rich history. With each lap, solid-sea legs thaw and confidence builds, prompting skaters to leave the side rails and attempt possible tricks highlighted by the facility's natural lighting, or backward-skate straight into the center ice via its military-grade magnet.

Open year-round, Kirkwood Ice Skating Rink plays host to public skating sessions, lessons, and hockey games for fledgling wintertime athletes. The rink bathes in natural light, which pours through translucent panels to illuminate and spotlight skaters as they make their elliptical loops. Just beyond the rink's edge, a concession area serves hot eats worthy of consumption in the adjacent, fireplace-equipped warming area. A jam-packed monthly schedule details one-and-a-half and two-hour public skating sessions seven days a week, allowing skaters to get their icy fix regardless of conflicting guitar lessons or power lunches with dapper climatologists.
