Penguins Pond opens to the public at 2 p.m. Friday, according to a press release, and the hours are generous: 11 a.m.-11 p.m. weekdays, and 7 a.m.-11 p.m. on weekends.
Miss the locked-out NHL? Make your own darn hockey. Besides public skating, Penguins Pond is also available for rental for youth and adult hockey.
Admission for skating will be $7, and $3 for skate rental, with group rates available.
The rink’s up through Jan. 13.
It’s the third location for an outdoor Penguins rink. The first was on the North Shore in 2010. Last year it was at SouthSide Works.
Meanwhile, it’ll be the first event at Highmark Stadium, the new, $10.2 million home of the Pittsburgh Riverhounds team and the Pittsburgh Passion football club. The stadium is set to open next spring.
Penguins Pond is a collaboration between the Pens, the Riverhounds, Highmark Stadium and 84 Lumber.
