Skating rink holds special place in many memories
Written by Press Staff Writer

Remember penny nights?

And the announcement of “All Skate” when the music started?

How about “ladies choice,” “moonlight skate,” men's races, ladies races and special dances?

The roller skating rink at Pearson Park holds a special place in many people’s hearts and memories including countless couples who met and felt that spark when their hands joined for a skate around the oval and parents who taught their kids to skate on the same place they learned themselves.

When it opened in 1938, the 220-foot-long, 120-foot-wide oval roller skating rink was the largest outdoor skating rink in Ohio. The rink, shelter and nearby tennis courts were built by the WPA at a cost of $17,000.
