* Former training facility for the NY Rangers * Indoors - located at Rye Playland in Westchester. I-95 to exit 19 - Playland Parkway - follow the signs to the rink. This can be a very nice place to skate. The ice is excellent. By far, this was probably the best ice we have skated on all season - smooth, well maintained (it is resurfaced halfway through a 2-hour public session) and medium hard. There are three rinks - a full-size rink on the main level, a half-size rink upstairs on the second level, and a one-quarter size rink for small children. The only issue about this place is that they want you to skate carefully - forward, slowly and counterclockwise. (There are signs "No Fast Skating".) This is probably one of the best places for beginners to skate - the ice is great and the crowd is controlled. Free parking is available. There is a skating school if you need lessons. Coin lockers are available and cost 50 cents (or slightly larger ones for 75 cents). Skate rental is available. There is a snack bar and there are several video games. You "enter the building at your own risk" - whatever that means.
