Sponsored by Brooklyn's Aviator Sports, Aviator Queens is the only outdoor rink in the borough; it's located across the street from the Shops at Atlas Park in Glendale. Since it's brand-new this season and still relatively unknown, it's not swarmed like many of its competitors. On Saturdays at 10am, kids can drop in for a learn-to-skate program ($15, plus skate rental), and the site can be rented Monday through Thursday for private parties.
