Rosa Parks Circle Ice Rink

Tuesday, 03 January 2012 16:40
What makes the ice rink so popular? Could it be the thrill of skating on West Michigan's first refrigerated outdoor skating rink? Or, the "joy of skating under the stars and on top of the stars" as stated by Lou Rabaut, President of the Grand Rapids Griffins Youth Foundation. Perhaps it's the soaking in the ambiance given by Ecliptic - the notable artwork - designed by artist/architect Maya Lin.  Whatever the reason, the Rosa Parks Circle Ice Rink is a very cool place to visit. December 02, 2011 – March 04, 2012 Times:Skates available Monday & Tuesday 6:00 PM to… Read more...
