Where To Skate In The Kitchener Waterloo Area


Finding Family Friendly Activities

We're always looking to connect KW Families with activities and lot of fun things to do in the Kitchener Waterloo area, so when the question was posed on our group page of where to find indoor skating in KW I got right to work. After the research was compiled I decided to post a list of all places to skate near Kitchener Waterloo.  Whether it be public skating, figure skating, minor hockey, ringette, sledge hockey, shinny, speed skating, inline skating and skateboarding. Did we miss any other kind of skating?
