It’s all in an effort to provide a cool environment for people during this excessive heat advisory.

Teens and families went out Friday afternoon to test their balance and skills on the ice.

Clarissa Lares, one of the skaters who was out Friday, gave us her perspective.

"So outside, it's like, if you're in a car, you're gonna die,” Lares said. “Even with the air conditioner, with the sun beating down on you, it's so hot. And then in here, it's cold, so it's better."

The city of South Charleston is also offering free snow cones at admission into Little Creek Pool this weekend.
