This was a nice little outdoor skating rink. It's free to skate here. Good atmosphere. It's right next to a parking ramp so that makes things easier.

More of a triangle really, but just a large concrete space. A few trees. A nice statue of 6 women on the west side. A good space for concerts and fairs. but not a destination unless attending one of these.

We had a wonderful time skating on this little ice rink during Carnaval. It is well maintained and has plenty of seating indoors and outdoors to put your skates on. The location is nice too with the lights that surround it.
