Although skating around the Arctic Circle sounds like a relaxing family vacation, corrupt penguin crossing guards can cause lengthy delays unless bribed with mackerel. Put some mackerel in your pocket for today's Groupon to The Pond Family Friendly Ice Rink in Chagrin Falls. Open seven days a week, The Pond gives recreational skaters, off-duty hockey players, and armless ice sculptors a family-friendly environment in which to pursue their chilly passions. Whatever your age, skill level, or hot-chocolate tolerance, glide in for the 90-minute open-skate session held every day from 1:30 p.m. until 3 p.m., with an additional session held Friday nights from 7–8:30. Today's Groupon includes skate rental, and interested ice gliders have the option to continue the frozen fun with a $20 discount on an eight-week Learn to Skate course.
The Pond Family Friendly Ice Rink
An indoor skating rink, The Pond Family Friendly Ice Rink hosts skaters of all abilities during public-skating sessions—offered seven days a week. As the frosty stomping ground for the Geauga Youth Hockey League and the Chagrin Valley Figure Skating Club, The Pond helps young skaters find their stride on the ice without having to carve a treadmill out of a glacier. Skaters of all abilities can learn to glide gracefully across the rink during Learn to Skate lessons, which are offered multiple times a week.
