  • 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...

  • The staff are quite rude, and take their jobs way too seriously. I don't understand why masks are mandated while it is outdoors and we are all OVER 6 feet apart. The ice itself was pretty good, but they ended up cutting time short twice.
  • Great place for families. Loved that it was free to rent rollerblades, scooters, bikes and skateboards
