i grew up in granite city, and use to hang out at this skating rink all the time. back then it was called stopcotties. now my son, and nephews go there, and love it. my mom just told me recently that she use to go there when she was a teenager. i had the most fun there. i was a great skater, and use to skate around to the music. its a great place for the kids to hang out at.
