Oaks Park rollerskating rink

Want to visit the 1970’s? What about 1905? That is when Oaks Park was first built! The roller skating rink has been in place (and little changed) since the 1920’s. My partner’s grandmother remembers skating there. It still has a functional pipe organ that is displayed in the center of the ceiling and every Sunday night they have live organ music that you can skate to. Don’t miss the skate shop. It is one of the best sources in Portland for roller skates, rollerblades, laces, socks, and all the paraphernalia you need for derby, rollerdancing, or jamming. Here’s the skating schedule.
