Guide To North Texas Ice Skating Rinks

By Jill Krause

We may never be able to walk to a local frozen pond, lace up some skates and take off across the ice like our neighbors way up north. However, North Texans have quite a few man-made ice rinks across the Metroplex where we can Figure 8 and Triple Salchow (or at least try) to our hearts content. Here are some rinks to check out.
