The Rink - Open Air Activities Zone and Restaurant

The Rink is a upscale and green sports and kids activities zone for the whole family. It is located in Skolkovo Innovation Center, only a short drive from MKAD. In summer season the green zone has a football field, a grass lawn to play badminton, table tennis and outdoor chess.
The park doesn't cover a very large territory but it offers a very modern and relaxing atmosphere and is extremely kids and pets friendly. Sitting on the restaurant deck or in a sun chair (those are placed throughout the grass lawn) you can watch your little ones play football, run around or have fun on the play ground while enjoying a good meal. In case of a bad weather, there is an indoors Montessori inspired play area in the main restaurant building. When the winter comes we are planning to return to check out the skating rink which provides rentals and skating instructors during winter season.
The Rink restaurant is a branch of Skolkovo Golf Club Restaurant and it offers an interesting and family friendly menu with good food quality. The restaurant is a popular weekend destination, but it does not take reservations, so expect to stay in line for a while to get a table on a sunny day. While standing in the line and enjoying sun we were treated by a glass of prosecco by the restaurant, which made our waiting more enjoyable. Keep in mind, it can also take time to get your food and drinks so plan for some extended time at this place. It is a good people watching spot so you will probably not be bored and it is totally fine to play with your kids on the playground while your food is been being prepared. We liked the Rinks hamburger, sweet potato fries, pita bread with baba ganush. Pizza was another great choice. The menu has a special section for those who are on a keto diet.
The Rink is a place to relax outside with family and friends, play sports and enjoy food!
Location: Moscow region, Skolkovo, Novaya str 100

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
