Ok, so I'm not a skater myself, but being married to a hockey guy makes me qualified to tell a good rink when I see it. And it's not really about the ice. Over the Christmas holidays I went skating with my grandson down at market square. It was so great to have a free way to spend the day and I think others agree because the place was packed. When we needed a break we went to Sipps to warm up and when we were done we went to Lonestar for their famous fajitas (it's just in front of the Holiday Inn Kingston Waterfront which we found at stayinkingston.ca).
So, if you looking for a good family activity in downtown Kingston, bring your skates and head to Springer Square.
