The ice rink in downtown South Haven has opened for another Michigan winter, and this year the indoor space has been expanded. The additional 2,000 square feet comes from the former Carlson and Associates real estate office. A doorway was opened between the original rink office space into the new space, giving skaters additional space to don their skates and warm up indoors.
The iconic rink is housed under the large pavilion downtown, and the skies darken, the snowflake lights provide a romantic touch for evening skaters. Just steps away is Cafe Julia, which welcomes skaters with hot chocolate, lattes and new this year, adult beverages like red wine, hot toddies and Irish coffee.
Visitors to South Haven will find the daily passes and skate rental quite affordable, at only seven dollars per person for a full day of skating. The rink is open every day of the winter season, beginning on Thanksgiving Day through the beginning of March.
