FINALLY got to visit the Gardens Ice House in Laurel, MD...
The Olympic-themed facility has two sheets of ice, but one of the rinks is down for he summer.
Since I sometimes work there, please allow me to expand on this. Depending on how you count, it has up to 6 sheets of ice.
Indoor surfaces: One is Olympic sized. Two are NHL sized, one of which is usually closed in summer. There is also a full size surface built and maintained by a separate curling club, not by Gardens staff, which isn't strong enough to skate on, so maybe it doesn't count. And there is a small surface run by a separate hockey training organization - maybe it doesn't count either.
Outdoor surface: One small surface, only open in winter.
At the moment 4 surfaces - one Olympic, one NHL, the curling and I think the hockey training surface, have ice on them.
Does that seem like a lot of ice? Not really, I guess we have a lot of hockey clubs in our area, which use most of the time - except for the curling rink, which is only used for curling.
There is also an exercise center upstairs.
The other building is Fairland Aquatic Center, which has swimming pools and gyms, outdoor playground equipment, playing fields, and a tennis bubble. There are trails around it, for walking, biking and inline skating - and according to trail markings, horses.
BTW, original poster, 9 hours sure seems like a long commute...
