Skates Alive Closing In Owensboro

Owensboro has lost a skating rink that was once a popular hang out.

The owners of Skates Alive announced they were closing for good on July 29.

In a statement on Facebook, they thanked customers for the ability to share the wonderful memories.

The skating rink will be open every Saturday until the end of the month.

Some said the closing feels like losing a part of their childhood.

“I tagged one of my best friends for 15 years now because this was the place we went every Friday and Saturday night when we were in middle school and in high school. Our childhood memories were here,” said Brittany Kruger.

One resident added she hoped someone can keep the skating rink open.
