Carousel Skating Rink

Nothing struck fear into a young boy like the high dive tower at Blakely's. Or perhaps you preferred the water slide at Maple Plunge. But to a young man, Lake Millerton or Lost Lake was the destination. Remember the ice rink in Pinedale? Post your favorite Summer Activity here.

Carousel Skating Rink

Postby Klassik57 » Sun Aug 18, 2013 3:04 pm

In the early 70's, we hung out at The Carousel Skating Rink every Friday and Saturday night. It was on Shields btw. Maple and Chestnut. We'd meet up with our friends from Sierra Junior High School and skate to the Pop Music.

My husband Joe and I first laid eyes on each other at the Carousel skating ring in 1977. It was love at first site. Joe asked for my phone number I did not have any paper or pencil so he skated to the office, came back with paper and pencil which I wrote my number....I still have that paper put away safely to this day. First date a week later. He proposed 3 months later and we married 5 months later on Christmas day, which at that time we moved into our first place across from the skating ring lol....go figure :) We have two beautiful daughters and just celebrated our 40th anniversary on Dec. 25, 2017. My friends and I alway's skated at this place, I have found no other place like this. Our wedding day is a whole other ball game LOL.
