The outside is currently under construction. Which was a shame when weather was warm. I loved to hang out on the bleachers. Inside it was nice to hang out for a while so my niece & I could cool off. There is a library vending machine to my surprise. I checked out a boom & a DVD. Super cool. There are plenty of other a things to do & check put there such as ice skating. I'm looking forward to the remodeling which might be done by next summer, it seems like its going to be great!
I'm a little biased because I skate here, but this center has two rinks right now and is currently being remodeled so it'll have 3 brand new rinks. The teachers here are all pretty helpful and kind. Adult classes are great!
We used to travel here for speedskating meets in the 90s. Little did I know then that I would someday live in Evanston, and have a kid in summer camps at Robert Crown. Despite showing advanced age, It's still a great facility nearly 30 yrs later. My pre-K kid loves the summer camps. We are looking forward to the new facility and updated camps with a better online enrollment system (hint hint). PS if you know me from speedskating in the early 90s, hit me up!
It doesn't have enough locker rooms, and what locker rooms they have are awful, but they will be renovating soon, so I expect that to change. Likewise, the manual doors, through which it is difficult to maneuver a hockey bag, but again, I expect great things from the renovation!
The interior is very organized. Its great place to go release energy. They host many events like musicals on ice and others. You can skate play hockey or just enjoy watching from the stands. Robert crown also has a soccer and football feild for the nicer days. It is a overall great place for this part of evanston. Its great for a fun night out with family and friends.
Worst rink I've ever played in. Couldn't even be in the locker room, got ready for the game outside because it was dark and smelled horrible. Staff wasn't remotely helpful and there was very little way to find which locker room your team had. Bad seating as well as bad ice, giving this rathole of a rink one star.
The refs were very unexceptional. A stick was thrown onto the ice from the stands, and no penalty was handed out. VERY BIASED. Refs only favored home team, and loved throwing people out. Also there were no handles on the locker room doors. The facility is the worst I have been too. GARBAGE
The referees were actual garbage. It would have been more fitting to put last weeks leftovers on the ice. They completely overlooked the rules and definitely favored the home team. I could not be more displeased with this “community center”.
This facility is a staple of Evanston. There is a large ice skating rink where hockey games are played, and a smaller rink. Various classes are also held at this facility. Once a year it is a temporary shelter for the clinically insane when Evanston parents congregate at the facility for a poorly-organized Camp sign-up experience.
