As the Mother City continues to enjoy plenty of hot, sunny days over summer, the thought of a new outdoor ice rink in Cape Town is one that many of us are sure to welcome. After all, what could be better than taking to the ice skating rink while still enjoying fresh air and outdoor time? If you are looking for things to do with the kids this summer, while also finding new ways for them to cool down and have a bit of fun, The Blue Train Park in Mouille Point is where you can find this cool new skating rink (pardon the pun).
Designed especially for kids (ages 3 to 12), this rink is based at the lovely children’s play park in Mouille Point, in the heart of the Atlantic Seaboard in Cape Town. Along with the rink, the park is also home to a number of great facilities, activities and attractions. All fees from activities and events held at the park go to the Sea Point Rotary Club, which provides much-needed help to charities within Cape Town. Highlights for kids and parents include parties, a mini blue train, adventure playground, refreshment kiosk and other safe utilities.
