As the temperatures go down, Washington parks open their skating rinks to the great delight of kids and winter sports fans. The most spectacular ones include the rink in the National Gallery of Art's Sculpture Garden, the rink at Fort Dupont, and the Silver Spring Outdoor Skating Rink. The season runs from early November till mid-March.
