The Little Ice Rink near Park Street and Lincoln Avenue will be open for about two more weeks — through Jan. 29.
With bad weather expected to start in the Bay area on Thursday (and last for at least at week), now may be a good time to get down to the ice rink.
For residents, especially younger ones who may not be experienced on the ice, there are plastic orange seals that serve like carts or aids for visitors to hold on to as they move around the rink to lessen the risk of falling.
(The skates for rent are also colored bright orange.)
Perforce Software Foundation sponsored the rink, which has proven to be very, very popular with Alamedans during and after the holiday season. There are warm refreshments available for purchase.
