    Central Park is the perfect place to go ice skating

    Look at this sentence:

    Central Park is the perfect place to go ice skating in New York City this winter!

    My question: Is there any possibility to use "do" instead of "go" here? Some of my colleagues claim that "do ice" and "go ice" have the same semantic issue. Are they right?

    Thanks.
