  • The Oval is located on the North Common, opposite one of the entrances to the Citadel. The Oval is open year round. In the summer you can roller blade and ride your bike. Free admission.

  • This is a great free outdoor skating area that makes its own ice. It is part of a large historical Commons. Great for walking in the city, also amateur sports on parts of it in the summer. Very...

  • A very fun, family-friendly, free outing. Borrow everything you need to have a great time: roller blades/skates, bikes, trikes, scooters, helmets. There's something for everyone, including some accessible options.
  • Amazing place to have fun, although lately you used to be able to just get your equipment pass, go in the garage and grab whatever you wanted, now you need a scooter pass, skateboard pass, bike pass, roller skates pass etc. They took out some cool equipment too. All and all, its a fun place but its not like it used to be.
