Best Roller Rink

Brookpark Skateland

The largest roller rink in the region (and one of the few around that still has a hardwood floor), Brookpark Skateland is home turf for some of the best roller skaters in the world. On Sunday and Wednesday nights, the "skate rats" tango, flea hop, waltz, and swing to live organ music. During intermission, they try out some of their more daring moves, like aerial spins and backflips. Wobbly wheelers can hit the floor during the all-skates. The rink is home to a skate shop and several in-house pros, plus lots of nimble old men and women who are happy to give beginners a few pointers.
