  • The best activities in Avalon Park Chicago: The Rink

    The Rink

    1122 E 87th St
    T 10AM-2PM (30+) 8PM-midnight (21+), W 5:30PM-8:30PM (families), Th 8PM-midnight (30+), F 7PM-11PM, Sa noon-3PM (pre-teen) 7PM-11PM (teen) midnight-4AM (18+), Su 5PM-9PM (30+) 9:30PM-1:30AM (18+). $7, but varies. Ok, this place is cool. A roller rink oozing with South Side character and home to not a few serious skaters who flaunt their moves to smooth R&B and old school. It has shown up a bit in pop culture, from the movies "Soul Food" and "Roll Bounce" to several nationally-aired music videos. If you are intimidated by the pros on the rink but want to check the place out, there are also arcade games and pool/ping-pong tables. It is open to different age groups at different times, so make sure to double-check the hours before coming here.
