Lace up your skates and hit the outdoor rinks with the kids. Nothing says winter fun like a day out in nature enjoying the ice together. Bowness Park, Carburn Park and Prince's Island Park all offer expansive and beautiful rinks (read: no competition with hockey players) and the best part: they are all free to enjoy. Put together a thermos of hot chocolate to keep little hands warm and get some exercise as a family. Christmas may be over, but that's no reason to go out walking in a winter wonderland.
