While the warmer weather leant itself nicely to sprinklers and pop-up movie theaters, the chill in the air leaves much to be desired in the outdoor entertainment area. Enter Rothman Ice Rink, the city's newest skating venue. This rink offers up low-cost skating for anyone willing to don a pair of skates and go in a few circles.

Since its debut earlier this year, Dilworth Park has succeeded in providing the city of Philadelphia with a wonderful new venue for meeting friends, grabbing a bite to eat and relaxing in the outdoors. The park even acts as a meeting point for several train lines in the area.
Now, the opening of the Rothman ice skating rink means families, coworkers, friends, neighbors and visitors can all come to the park and entertain themselves throughout the winter season. Skating is a great way to bring exercise into the picture, and it' an activity that's entertaining and fun for people of all ages.
Worried you'll get cold while circling the ice or waiting for friends in Dilworth Park? Don't fret. The area will feature a warming tent, and it's also scheduled to host a variety of seasonal activities, holiday happenings and winter programming throughout the cold months when it's open. Visitors to the park are welcome to watch, participate or both.

The Rothman rink offers everyone the chance to burn off a little steam, remain active throughout the colder months, get a little fun on with friends and family and, most importantly, have a little fun no matter what age you may be.
