2006_03_iceskate.jpgWith the proposed chill coming this weekend, we thought it would be a good to remind everyone that the city's ice skating rinks will be closing on April 2. Yes, the Pond in Bryant Park has been closed since January and Prospect Park's rink closed last weekend, but there's still the Abe Stark Rink at Coney Island, World’s Fair Ice Skating Rink in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, the Staten Island War Memorial Ice Skating Rink in Clove Lakes Park, and Lasker Rink and Wollman Rink in Central Park. And speaking of toe picks, has anyone seen The Cutting Edge 2 on ABC Family yet?

And we did a little exploring of the Parks Department's website: The list of invasive "do not plant" plants is surprising, you can meet Atka the wolf (and learn about wolfology!) on March 19 in Staten Island, and this month's park is Canal Park.
