A welcoming environment with designated times for skaters with special physical or developmental challenges to enjoy the rink. Take to the roller rink with a friend, caregiver or family member to skate or roll and experience newfound freedom or a sense of accomplishment.

SUPPORT:
Only non-motorized wheelchairs are allowed on the roller rink.

SNACKS:
The Lake House will have plenty of hamburgers, hotdogs, tacos and snacks available. For skaters with special dietary needs please feel free to bring your own food from home. Note: Outside food not permitted during regular open hours.

SAFETY:
Emergency medical personnel will be on site if needed. You may want to bring your own helmet.
