Triangle Park Ice Rink Open Now for 2019 Season

    Triangle Park Ice Rink Open Now for 2019 Season

    Nov 26, 2019

    It’s that time of year again: time for Triangle Park ice skating!

    As most Lexington locals know, every year just before Thanksgiving, the already beautiful Triangle Park in Downtown Lexington is transformed into an even more beautiful winter-themed ice skating rink. This is one of Lexington’s best Christmas-themed attractions, hands-down. There’s a large, brightly-lit Christmas tree, hot chocolate, and of course, ice-skating -- everything you could possibly want for a fun evening preparing for the holiday season. It’s like a mini, less-crowded version of the NYC Rockefeller Center! 

    For a nominal fee, you can take to the ice in the glow of charming festive decorations and one of most Instagram-worthy locations in Lexington. 

    If you’ve been too stressed to really experience any holiday spirit, then this is the event for you. In its first year, the Unified Trust Company Ice Rink welcomed over 22,000 skaters and an additional 65,000 visitors to Triangle Park and Downtown Lexington, and every year since then, it’s been attracting Lexingtonians with its festive cheer. Don’t forget to grab a warm mug of hot chocolate and some Big L’s Gourmet Hot Dogs to complete the winter experience. 

    We’ll see you out on the rink! 

    Triangle Park is now open for the winter and will stay open through the middle of January.
