Dallas Area Rinks -Near DFW
 
Going to be in the area for a couple weeks and wondered if I could get a skate in? Anyone have any advice on rinks with open time near DFW/Grapevine? Thanks for your help.

The second one there is actually a chain of rinks around the city sponsored by (you guessed it) dr. pepper and the Dallas Stars.

Okay, when you say DFW, I assume you mean the airport, correct? If not, be more specific about the area of town.

Assuming you mean the airport, there are two relatively close choices - the DPSC in Euless and the Polar Ice at Grapevine Mills Mall (very close to the north exit of the airport). Both are two sheets each, and the links above should have their open skate/drop-in schedules. The Mall is probably 5 minutes out of the airport when there's no traffic, and Euless maybe 15? But there is always traffic in that part of Grapevine right now because they are redoing in that hellhole of a freeway interchange.

If you're going to the Fort Worth side of the Metroplex, I'm not as sure about the ice out that way. On the northeast side (NE of Dallas) there's the DPSC in McKinney and Frisco (and some in Plano usually, but they're closed for construction) and the ITC in Richardson that is hockey only, no free skates or figure skating but plenty of drop ins.

I think the rink where the Allen Americans play has some open ice as well, but I'm less sure about that, and Allen is way the heck out there.

Thanks for the replies. Indeed, I'll be in the Grapevine area, about five minutes from the airport. Two plus weeks of training so I'll need somewhere to get some exercise in the evening. Thanks again.
