My Favorite Place: Carman Garden Skating Rink

 

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.
