I happen to stumble this footage on Facebook today. I didn’t know that the last time there was a skating rink, (roller skating mind you) it was over 30 years ago. Many folks in the Brew City, mainly the African-American community remember The Palace on the northside. Now the way you have to get to Roller Skating rinks is in the suburbs. And not in the metro area.

The video is presented by SkatezMilwaukee, in which it’s trying to get a campaign started to bring back ROLLER Skating to Milwaukee. Mainly for the urban kids and teens of today. Check it out. Even though it’s non-partisan.

Is it time for a new era for roller skating in Milwaukee? And I don’t mean the parks or the suburbs!
