Wow! A private patch! I would totally do figures! If you could fit a serpentine, it's also possible to practice a lot of adapted ice dance patterns.
I'm still jealous. To have my own private ice rink, no matter how tiny - that's actually a dream of mine. When I was young and in gymnastics, I wanted to buy a house with a massive, tall room, to put equipment in - now, as an adult, I want my own little ice rink.
Indoors. With a tiny zamboni. Why not dream if you're gonna dream?
ETA: Apparently, there are companies that will build indoor and outdoor custom rinks for you, with chillers. How much do you suppose that costs? How rich would I need to get...
Still want it with the tiny zamboni, though.
ETA: they have a tiny ice resurfacing machine. Sigh.

Her father was a big do it yourselfer. He built the rink from scratch. I don't remember how they resurfaced the rink. They probably just hosed it down and squeegeed it.
