To reserve the rink, you currently have to call the park and recreation department; however, when they finish the entire park I believe they'll have someone on-site that you can talk to and let you play there.
So I finally got around to looking into this rink. It's totally lame. The Tampa Rec. Department doesn't own the rink at all. Instead, it's the property of some guy named Al who charges people to play there. $10 an hour with a minimum of two hours. "Unless he's busy during the reserved time, then it's an extra $25 per hour." WTF?

Oh well.
