New Ice Skating Rink Opens at Eastern Shore Centre

FORT, Ala. – The Eastern Shore Centre is under new ownership after being held by the bank for two years. Now, family-owned Allied Development of Alabama is working on big plans to attract new tenants and bring back many former retailers that have moved to other locations. Ownership wants this shopping center to have a true family atmosphere.

One of the first changes to roll out is a new ice skating rink in the shopping center courtyard between Half Shell Oyster House and California Dreaming. This skating rink takes advantage of a synthetic material that will allow them to offer the skating rink year-round without ice melting. The Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce helped celebrate the ice rink’s opening with a ribbon cutting Friday, March 23, just in time for Spring Break.

The ice rink hours are as follows:
Sunday – Tuesday:  4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Wednesday – Friday 4 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Saturdays 12 p.m. – 10 p.m.

Admission is free. You can rent skates or an aid to help young skaters for $7 in the kiosk next to the rink. You can also host a private party or event at the skating rink. Simply email

Expect to hear many other announcements in the coming months as more retailers announce their openings at the Eastern Shore Centre.
