An outdoor ice skating rink is coming to the Owensboro Riverfront in late-November.
The new outdoor skating rink will be located on McConnell Plaza. It will be open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, starting Nov. 27.
Hours of operation are:
- Fridays: 4:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
- Saturdays: 12:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
- Sundays: 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Group rentals will also be available during the week.
Skate rental will be available, with prices ranging from $8 - $10.
The 80 X 60 rink, made of synthetic ice also utilized by NHL teams, is not dependent on weather or temperature, which will allow for year-round usage.
“The outdoor ice-skating rink will be a wonderful amenity for not only residents but visitors too. We view the rink as an incredible tourist attraction that will bring people to Owensboro to spend money thus fueling our local economy,” said Mark Calitri, President & CEO of Visit Owensboro.
Operations will be managed by the Owensboro Convention Center.
Gas Pipeline, Atmos Energy, Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, and the Staton Family Foundation are together sponsoring the outdoor ice-skating rink known as Energy on Ice in downtown Owensboro through 2027.
