Downtown Ice skating  
353 Court Street 

Located in the East End District of downtown Rochester and adjacent to the Strong Museum, Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Park (formally Manhattan Square Park) is a popular gathering place. After renovations were completed in 2008, the year-round park has been the busy home to a wide range of visitors from families from throughout the region to downtown workers on their lunch breaks.

Another great outdoor place to skate in Rochester is the pond across the street from Highland Hospital on South Ave. (See map below.) There is a sign at the entrance to the pond indicating if it is open for skating. Be sure to skate on the pond only when it is open.
