Skateland and Bosanova skating rinks
The Penkhus family relocated to Colorado Springs in 1949 and established the automobile dealership that still bears their name and Skateland on Colorado Ave. Lee White Penkhus played the organ and 1960s roller derby star Cindy McCoy learned to skate there.
Bosanova opened its doors at 2903 N. Prospect Street (just south of E. Fillmore Street) in 1966 and closed in 2004. Most remember it for its maple skating surface.
