I had the opportunity to participate in the Family Day free skate at the Kerry Park Arena.
Seeing all those young families enjoying the exercise together was a huge treat.
I suspect the age range was five to 80ish (I’m 78) and it was enjoyed by everyone.
The place was a beehive of activity without any loud, annoying music and not a single smartphone in sight.
I suggest this free family skate should be staged more often. Perhaps twice a month or more.
The cost of the arena use I’m sure would be offset by the goodwill, enjoyment and health benefits.
