“Dear PoPville,

Does anyone know the specific date(s) the local ice skating rinks open for the season? The National Sculpture Garden’s web site just says the skating rink opens in “mid-November”; Washington Harbour’s web site says their rink opens in November 2013; and the new Shaw skating rink won’t be ready until December.”

The Washington Post has a good round up of area ice skating rinks – for DC they say – sculpture garden is Nov. 15; Georgetown harbour opens this Friday at noon; Canal Park by Navy Yard hoping for mid-Dec. due to some flooding issues; and Lake Shaw (925 Rhode Island Ave NW) also in mid-Dec.
