Odoorn ice-skating rink

On foot from the Schapenpark nature area back to the village of Odoorn we passed the skating rink and canteen belonging to the local ice-skating club 'Schoonmeer'. During the Winter when it is cold enough this area will be flooded so a shallow field of ice will appear. Surrounded by forest it must look nice when everything is frozen.

An ice-skater made from tubes looks out over the field. According to the text underneath the sculpture was most likely put here in 2001 at the 75th anniversary of the ice-skating club. It says:  "1926-2001 IJsvereniging Schoonmeer".

  1. Prachtig hoe je met simpele middelen toch zo duidelijk iets kan uitdrukken.

  2. A fun ice skater! That field would make a very good sized rink in winter!

  3. This comment box had some Dutch words in it and then they disappeared. Eerie! Anyway, I like the idea of an ice-skating club and I would enjoy this if I lived in that area. I probably can't skate anymore, though. :)
