Enjoy Seasonal Skating at Houston’s Eco-Friendly Rink: The ICE at Discovery Green

Living at Monarch Medical Center Apartments in Houston, we typically enjoy moderate winters while the rest of the country freezes. Not having to bundle up might make visitors to the city think that we’re being denied all of the cold-weather fun that they enjoy up north. But thanks to the ICE at Discovery Green, we have it all. For the past three years, in mid-November, the park has transitioned the model boat basin into an eco-friendly ice rink for locals to enjoy.

The ICE at Discovery Green

An Eco-Friendly Rink

The ICE at Discovery Green is unique in more ways than one. Not only is it the largest outdoor rink in the Southwest, but the water used to create the ice is recycled from Kinder Lake. And that’s not all. The equipment used to maintain the ice runs on renewable energy. And the rink borders are all made from recycled plastic. The ICE at Discovery Green is truly eco-friendly.

Open Through the Holidays

The ICE is open from November 18th to January 21st. You can even go skating on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day. Check the hours here. Skate rentals are available and there are discounts for military personnel, law enforcement, and employees or customers of the rink’s sponsors.
