Lebanon county, Jackson twp just east of Myerstown, Quarry Rd south of Main St. Nice rink, public, no fee. Re-habed above two years ago. Smooth asphalt painted surface. Nice rink. Downers, surface starting to come up in some areas, trying to to get the county to address this. Goals suck. Good for ball, fair for puck. Some areas puck go under kicker boards. Still a good rink. I started a facebook page on it. No organized teams or games.
Lebanon count Cornwall boro Boyd St south of Minersvillage, very nice rink, public, no fees. Don't use Google maps to find, wrong street names listed.
Hope this helps.
PS Google maps satillite image of Jackson county rink photos before the rehab. Both Google and Bings images are so old they don't show the rink in cornwall.
I second the Minersvillage rink. Very nice and in a nice , quiet town.
Not sure if the Jackson Borough is the same one as I'm thinking, but I know Sinking Springs use to have a very nice rink. Nice boards, glass and lights.
Venice Island on the Manyunk Canal (IF it was ever reopened).Edit: Apparently they just recently started the demo on the entire island so it'll be awhile.
Was just informed there is one near Wintersport in Willow Grove,off of Railroad Ave. ?
Horsham Park, as previously mentioned. E/-
I went and checked out Stony Creek Park in Blue Bell today. Awesome facilities. Rink is a pretty good size (compared to Horsham, Whistlestop), with full boards topped with chain-link. Two small sets of bleachers on one side, player benches, penalty boxes and scorekeepers box on the other. Surface is smooth rolling. Only issue is that the center red line has a few spots where the top-coat is coming off but it doesn't effect playability (unlike similar spots on the ice of the now-defunct Melodybrook ). It is also lighted, though I'm not sure what time the power gets cut. Nets are in serviceable shape, piping is solid if not in need of a quick coat of paint.
One thing I noticed is that the sign states "For Whitpain Township residents and guests". I'm guessing most say that? There is also a requirement for full gear sans shoulder pads when playing a game. I was there by myself so it was gloves and helmet. There is league play there and permits for rental/parties are available.
Um, there is one behind the wawa off route 30 in downingtown, you can see it easily from the route 30 bypass. It's nice and not frequently used. I'll probably try to get some people together to play there shorty. Not playing ice hockey due to my concussions is killing me, so I'm going to try getting back into ball hockey since a street hockey ball won't have the same impact as a puck on an ice hockey goalie mask, or at least thats my theory. since F=MV and though velocity may be similar, mass of a ball is much less.
there was once a place called family fun spot off 322. 2 water slides, a go cart track, and an outdoor rink. many many many fights with other middle schools. many fun times with the other schools girls behind the locker room.
I saw this thread a little while ago before I made my account and I actually have a few in Philadelphia. I actually just started playing roller yesterday I bought some Missions off craigslist for 30$ so I've just been working on my skating but anyway here are some local outdoor rinks.
There's 2 a larger full size and a smaller one at Fox Chase Recreation Center located on Rawn Street in northeast Philadelphia.
Theres 1 rink located at the Liberty Bell Youth Organization fields right next to the basketball courts on Chalfont Avenue right off of academy road in the northeast.
Then there's 1 rinks in Port Richmond at Monkiewicz playground right when you get off i95 at the Allegheny exit. At the intersection of Allegheny ave and Richmond street.
I know people play at Fox Chase every night and they keep the lights on until 10pm. I also see people play at Monkiewicz every night but I don't think they have lights.
Not as many people play at liberty bell but they keep their lights on until 10 or 11.
So this is random, but my friends and I have been playing in a league for 2 years now in Hazleton, pa, but a few guys moved so we're left without a lot of guys for our team this season. Would anyone here happen to be from the area and be interested, or know somebody? The league would start next week.
We have about 5 skaters and a goalie, but a few guys for a line change would just make life so much easier and make games much more fun / competitive
