Just like Central Park in NYC, Atlanta’s Piedmont Park is a wonderful place to enjoy ice skating among the city skyline at The Rink at Park Tavern. This seasonal ice skating rink is a great family outing. Tickets must be ordered online. You can order them prior to going or use a computer that has been set up at The Tavern for that purpose. Skate rentals are hockey skates and there is only one kind, so if you’re little princess wants skates like Olympic skaters, better bring your own.
This rink is a bit smaller than Centennial Park, but the amenities are much nicer. Couches and chairs line the waiting area and there is even a fireplace inside the bar area. Special rink desserts are available including gourmet hot chocolate with whipped cream and chocolate shavings – Mmmm. For those that just want to watch the little ones, there is a full bar available within the ice rink.
