Parker Ice Trail continues season:
The Parker Ice Trail at Discovery Park is open seven days a week. Due to current health protocols, reservations are required, which can be made up to two days in advance. Reserve some time on the ice at ParkerRec.com/IceTrail.

This favorite winter destination features a unique skating path that meanders through the park reminiscent of a frozen river or canal. Skaters or visitors can stay warm next to any of the three fire pits adjacent to the ice trail, or enjoy hot chocolate while watching skaters pass by. Concessions, skate rental and restroom facilities are available for all patrons visiting the park.

Depending on weather conditions, the Ice Trail's last day for the season is March 7.
