Outdoor Winter Fun
Have a case of cabin fever? Bundle up and head outdoors. CRPR wants to let you know about some winter fun. If there’s snow, you gotta go sledding. Slab Cabin Park, located in College Township at 316 Elmwood St., Lemont, has the best sledding slope around. There are even lights so you can ride until 11:00pm and it's free. The Village Ice Rink at Blue Spring Park will be open soon, located at 230 Wagner Street, Boalsburg. It's an all-natural, on-ground rink. Free and fun for kids of all ages. Have fun and be safe!
