A place to skate

Take your skills to the next level

Being part of a skating club is not only a great way to improve your skating skills, it is also a fun opportunity to make new friends. Silver Blades Skating Club (50 Montgomery Road) is one club in the area that offers the resources and expertise you need to increase your confidence on the ice. The club is only a 15-minute walk from Metropolitan Apartments.

A sweet finish

Following an afternoon on the ice, finish your day with a delectable cup of hot chocolate from a local bakery.
