NATIONAL CITY, CA – For two days only, an ice skating rink is coming to National City this winter. The National City Tourism Marketing District (NCTMD) and National City Chamber of Commerce will offer a 40’ x 26’ rink at Morgan Square (901 National City Boulevard, National City, 91950) that will open on Thursday, December 10th, and Friday, December 11th, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. (weather permitting).

Admission to the rink is FREE in the spirit of the Holidays. This includes skate rental and skating time for guests. The holiday decorated ice skating rink will include great music, tasty snacks, and hot and cold beverages for winter revelers under the glow of holiday lights.
