My Favorite Place: Carman Garden Skating Rink

September 30, 2014 | by Meredith Nutting


Editor’s Note: Meredith Nutting created this portrait of the Carman Gardens roller skating rink for last year’s Hidden City Daily anniversary party. It was so much fun, we’re celebrating there again this year on Saturday, Oct. 17th, 2015 from 7-10PM. Tickets to the party are $20 for Hidden City members, $25 general admission, which includes skates and beer.

    Me and my family were wondering if Carmen’s was still for sale? If there was a way to get in contact with the owner? We have great memories there. We are interested in owning it. Please connect us.
