EVERGREEN — The ice skating rink on Evergreen Lake could open as soon as Friday, according to the Evergreen Park & Recreation District (EPRD).
Employees are flooding the rink with water to increase the thickness of the ice to be around 12 inches. EPRD said it can’t use machinery, like the Zamboni, until the ice is 16 inches thick.
The rink is 8.5 acres with more than 10 hockey rinks and a public rink. It sits among pine-covered mountains about 30 minutes from Denver. In between skating, guests are welcome to go inside a concession area for hot chocolate and snacks.
To check on the status of the ice, call the skating hotline at 720-880-1391.
