Perhaps one of the most unknown recreational areas in Cornell, is the indoor skating rink at the Mill Yard Park pavilion. Each year, when the temperature drops enough to keep the rink frozen, about 4 inches of ice is laid on the floor of the pavilion over materials to prevent the ice from touching the cement.

The rink used to be located in front of the pavilion several years ago, but was moved indoors to save city employees time and hassle. That way, almost no maintenance is required to the rink, such as plowing snow off the surface and re-freezing the rink.
