This was a nice little outdoor skating rink. It's free to skate here. Good atmosphere. It's right next to a parking ramp so that makes things easier.

More of a triangle really, but just a large concrete space. A few trees. A nice statue of 6 women on the west side. A good space for concerts and fairs. but not a destination unless attending one of these.
