It might be tempting to take your workout indoors when the weather turns, but if you want to get some brisk air in your lungs and feel the burn in your muscles, ice skating will hit both marks. The downtown, open-air Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park Ice Rink has officially opened for the season, providing a great, cheap activity for kids on school breaks, an early-evening date option, or a chance for you to flex your poise. Just note that the rink will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park Ice Rink, 353 Court Street, is slated to remain open through Sunday, March 17, 2019. Open skate sessions are Monday through Saturday, noon to 8:50 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 7 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults and $2 for ages 17 and under. Skate rental is $3, and the max fee for families is $14. 428-7541; cityofrochester.gov/mlkparkicerink.
