Get your skates on – an ice rink is headed to the Southern Suburbs from Saturday 11 July
Is your sanity skating on thin ice now we’re hitting the second week of the school holidays? Why don’t you hit the ice and skate it out with the kiddos this weekend!
The pop-up rink is the brainchild of Winter Magic Ice Skating and Tobogganing and will be the first time an ice skating rink has opened in the south since the closure of the Noarlunga Ice Skating Rink in 2016.
Winter Wonderland in the South:
When: July 11th – July 20th
Time: 10am – 4pm daily
Where: The Old Masters Building at Colonnades’ Eastern End (bordered by Goldsmith Drive and Jackson Place),
Cost: From $11
Bringing skating back to kids in the south
Winter Magic co-owners Michael Lalic and Lorraine Malone say they’re excited to bring ice skating back to southern kids, who have been forced to travel to Thebarton for their fix since Noarlunga’s closure.
“We just want to put a smile on their faces and encourage people to get out, have fun and keep fit,” says Michael, who designed and constructed the former Noarlunga rink, the south’s original rink in Lonsdale in the late 1980s, and rinks around Australia and overseas.
Perfect for beginners
“Ice Patrols” will be on the ice to help beginners and skaters are encouraged to wear warm clothes and gloves.
