NRG Ice Rink Returns To CityScape

Why should outdoor holiday ice skating be reserved for Rockefeller Center and backwoods ponds in the Midwest?

CS Ice Rink-9WEBCityScape and NRG have again joined forces to bring skating to the most unlikeliest of places: Downtown Phoenix.

This Saturday, the holiday season gets a fantastic kickstart with the opening of the NRG Ice Rink at Patriot’s Square, along with the ceremonial lighting of CityScape’s holiday tree.

The fun begins at 4 p.m., with the tree lighting commencing at 6:30. There will be a visit from Santa, hot chocolate, and other treats.

Double the size of last year’s inaugural rink, the NRG Ice Rink will be open throughout the holiday season. Admission is $10 per person, which includes skate rental. Dates and hours of operation are as follows:

Nov. 25 through Dec. 18

Monday-Friday 5-11 p.m. / Saturday and Sunday 3-11 p.m.

Dec. 19 through Jan. 1

3-11 p.m. daily

Jan. 2 through Jan. 11

Monday-Friday 5-11 p.m. / Saturday and Sunday 3-11 p.m.

    Skating in downtown Phoenix? Yes, that is unlikely, but never the less awesome. It is good to see that people are still into old school ice skating..
