It never gets cold enough to freeze water in San Francisco, they use special refrigeration equipment to keep the water frozen. It does get cold here but not cold enough to snow, but sometimes they haul snow in from the mountains for the kids to play in.
They now have a permanent ice skating rink at 4th and Howard street near the new Carrousel that opened on October 17, 1998. The new ice skating rink can be found by climbing the steps by the Carrousel and then go left to the Zeum store and the ice skating rink is in the building just across from there.
