I went to the Dakin Dr Community Rink on the weekend hoping to get some skating in but there was no such rink. Was hoping you might be able to provide me some direction for this.
It looks as if that rink is no longer being built: https://www.facebook.com/groups/239248717527/about/ It’s too bad, it was a great community initiative while it lasted. Much appreciated work by all involved. Thanks for pointing this out, I’ll delete it from the map.
