A Cherished Page in History
The Elm Skating Rink
Every great neighborhood has a great story. Lexington Square of Elmhurst stands on the site of what was The Elm Skating Rink, a beloved feature in the greater Chicago area, where young and young at heart spent many a Saturday afternoon. Devotees (known as “rink rats”) still speak of the enticing aroma of The Elm’s wood floor, as well as the thrilling sounds coming from a massive organ with its 1,000 pipes. From 1956 to 1989, The Elm was the premier rink in the Chicago area.
But in fact, The Elm was more than a skating rink; it was a community. Where families came together and shared happy times. And today, Lexington Square of Elmhurst is more than a senior living community—we are your opportunity to come home again, to a place you already know and love.
