Rosa Parks ice rink set to re-open for 2022 season
It’s that time of year again, the ice-skating season at Rosa Parks Circle kicks off on November 25th
The Rosa parks Circle Ice rink will be back at full capacity this season. It will open at 10 am on Friday, November 25th.
Visitors can walk-up to skate or reserve skate times online. An individual can reserve a skate time for up to six household members. Reservations are free and skaters pay upon arrival. Skaters with reservations are advised to arrive within the first 10 minutes of their start time for a better chance that their skate size will be available upon arrival.
David Marquardt, the City’s parks and recreation director said, “We’re excited to bring this treasured winter pastime back to the heart of Grand Rapids at Rosa Parks Circle,” he adds, “After limited capacity in 2020 during COVID-19 and a relocated skating operation due to construction in 2021, we’re ready to be back in full force this winter at the newly renovated space.”
Admission to the ice rink is $2 for those 17 years old and younger and $4 for adults 18 and older. Skate rental is included with admission.
In addition to open skate, the rink will host events throughout the winter season, including the annual Christmas tree lighting on Dec. 2 from 5 to 7 p.m.
