Since the Oval opened to the public this winter it has been the talk of the town. Thousands of people have flocked to the outdoor rink to spend some quality time outside with their friends and family. So the gang at This Needs to Stop dropped by to check out what the fuss was about.
As a group of young professionals caught in that awkward time of your life where you don’t know if you should be doing Jagerbombs at The Dome or knitting socks for your unborn children, The Oval was a welcomed age neutral activity.
The atmosphere was fantastic. Everyone was having a great time (despite being out-skated by six year olds) and there were no bad apples trying to spoil the fun for everyone.
Most importantly all of this fun was being had in the heart of the city. Other parts of the country have long since embraced the Canadian tradition of outdoor skating rinks in their downtown cores. The idea of sipping hot chocolate and laughing with your friends while being outside is just enough to get us through these long winter months.
So that being said, we think the Halifax Oval is The Bees Knees and we’d love to see it stick around.
