The Amazing Natural Ice Skating Rink In New Jersey You'll Want To Visit
There are quite a few ice skating rinks in New Jersey. Some are indoors and some are outdoors but the best rinks are actually lakes. What makes them so great? In addition to the scenery, they just feel more…authentic. While the Garden State has several, one natural ice skating rink in New Jersey stands out among the rest.
While all ice skating is fun, this natural ice skating rink in New Jersey is really something special, it’s a chance to commune with nature while getting in some exercise! You can visit Holmdel Park at 44 Longstreet Road in Holmdel. If you want to skate safely expect to wait for about five days of sub-freezing weather before the ice is thick enough to be safe. While there are signs up throughout the park about conditions and safety, we recommend doing some research before heading out to stay as safe as possible. For the most updated information on current conditions, contact the park office at 732-946-9562. Visit the farm’s website for upcoming events at Longstreet Farm.
