is a very popular place to come with children - and it is free as long as
you have your own ice skates (which can be bought in shops for about 300
kroner). Skates can also be rented here.
Young children can get around by pushing plastic drink bottle crates around (the yellow box in the pictures). The system of having slow skaters on the outside of the track and fast skaters on the inside, with everyone going anti-clockwise works fairly well.
There is now a small outside ice rink at Kleppe, at the Jaerhagen shopping centre and the really special treat is when the lakes freeze over - and are pronounced to be safe - then thousands of people will be out - at Little Stokka lake, for example.
