Long blade skaters: The oval is reserved for long blade skating on Saturdays from 10-12, and Sundays from 10 - 11. This provides a great opportunity to skate some laps before it gets too crowded or come try speed skating - rentals available. There are also some folks there who can give tips in a relaxed friendly way if you are interested.
The oval has wheel chair access.
