2. SPEND SOME TIME ON SKATES

You want to skate but the rinks are not open. Or maybe the weather is nice and you want to take advantage. Skating outdoors is a great way to work on your skills! To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of outdoor skating spots around Kansas City. These include skate parks and outdoor skating rinks. Please practice social distancing and wear proper safety gear while skating!  Check out the list!
