If you’re eager to do something fun and different this holiday season, it might be time to check out Discovery Green’s “The Ice,” a fun-filled ice skating rink that’s open for the winter. You’ll be able to have a great time and find fun for the whole family each time you hit this ice skating rink this winter. Opening on December 10th and running until January 21st, The Ice brings you the biggest outdoor skating surface in the Southwest, and you can find it on 1500 McKinley Street in Houston.

A Green Ice Skating Rink

The ICE is a very unique skating rink. Not only is it the largest outdoor skating rink you’ll find in Texas, it’s also an energy-efficient rink. Discovery Green partners with Ice Rink Events, a designer and installer of ice rinks around the world, and uses Kinder Lake’s water to freeze the ice. The rest of the rink’s equipment is all made to run on renewable energy. Plus, the ice rink’s border is even made from recycled plastic, and the ice rink itself is very green.

The Ice brings you a 7,716 square-foot ice skating rink to you yearly, and also offers a smaller ice skating rink, called “The ICE Box,” which is made for smaller, younger skaters under the age of four. Also, non-motorized wheelchair users are also welcome to come enjoy the rink in their own wheelchairs as long as they are accompanied by another adult while on the rink.
