Ice rink opens in downtown Denver

Skate rentals are available at the downtown Denver winter-season staple in Skyline Park.

DENVER — Downtown Denver's ice-skating rink is back for an 12th year.

The Downtown Denver Rink will provide free skating in Skyline Park at 16th and Arapahoe streets from Monday, Nov. 21 through Tuesday, Feb. 14.

Throughout the season, skating is free, with skate rentals available for $9 for kids 12 and under and $11 for adults 13 and older.

Downtown Denver Partnership said the opening of the rink will kick off holiday season festivities that include the 9NEWS Parade of Lights on Saturday, Dec. 3 and the Mile High Tree at Civic Center.

 After a two year hiatus, the rink — located outside between the Jeppesen Terminal and the Westin Hotel — has free skating between between the hours of 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
