Downtown Valparaiso has a new attraction: a state-of-the-art ice skating rink and pavilion known as the William E. Urschel Pavilion and ice skating is now open to the public. The new facility, conveniently located just west of Central Park Plaza and south of Lincolnway, is sure to draw in visitors from all over Porter County and even from both Lake and La Porte Counties.
Northwest Indiana Ice Skating
For years, Northwest Indiana has lacked sufficient ice skating facilities across the region and in the places where ice skating is available, time slots are often times very limited. For example, in St. John, Indiana, the Midwest Ice Arena houses mens leagues, high school hockey, skating lessons and more and is only able to accommodate open skating at odd hours such as 2:00-3:00pm on weekdays with no open skate on Saturdays. The new downtown Valparaiso ice skating rink is sure to bring relief for those looking to hit the ice during the winter season.
