This one of a kind rink will be the first of it's kind in this area. It will bring a unique opportunity to experience outdoor old time hockey and skating.

On Monday, August 12th 2013 The Gardens Ice House, located in Laurel, Maryland broke ground on a new outdoor rink.

This unique outdoor "mini" rink is 90 ft x 44ft and features a glycol system from Everything Ice ( The rink will also have its own conditioner and Zamboni, so ice quality should be top of the line.

We will also hold clinics, public sessions and youth hockey games outdoors. Host private parties or birthday celebrations on Whitey's Pond.
