Skate under the stars at The ICE at Discovery Green this winter

Strap on those ice skates and head out onto the largest outdoor ice skating rink in the Southwest at The ICE at Discovery Green, open daily in Downtown through Sunday, January 21, 2018.

At 7,716 square feet, the ICE at Discovery Green clocks in as the largest outdoor skating rink in the Southwest. Made from water recycled from the park’s Kinder Lake, the rink is the de facto headquarters for outdoor winter fun in Houston, presenting a wide variety of seasonal programming for skaters and spectators alike.

Throughout the course of the season, and most given weeks, you can expect to skate along to outdoor movies, live music and DJs, and (up until Christmas) with Santa Claus himself. Musical theme nights focus on jazz, country and pop hits. Adding to the festive holiday mix will be special ice carvings and art installations.

Off to the side, you’ll also find a dedicated, toddler-friendly rink known as the Ice Box for kids under 45 inches tall and below the age of 4.
