City Revives the 1970s For Skating Fans

No, this isn’t a typo; San FranDISCO is the name of a 5,000-square-foot roller rink the city opened Oct. 15 on Civic Center’s Fulton Plaza. The pop-up rink opened during National Roller Skating Month and will exist as a three-month pilot program, with possible extension. It features music from live D.J.s, disco balls, and colorful lights.

“Bringing our city back is going to require everyone in our community working together on ideas like this rink that get people excited about San Francisco,” said Mayor London Breed. She thanked the Civic Center Community Benefits District and Church of 8 Wheels for their support and partnership on the project.

The rink will include skate rentals, public seating areas, 90-minute instructional skating sessions, restrooms, and an overhead canopy.
