SPOKANE – Riverfront Park’s Numerica Skate Ribbon opens for ice skating on Saturday, December 5 under revised COVID-19 protocols. With safety at the forefront, skaters will be required to reserve a date/time and purchase tickets online to ensure we limit the number of skaters and provide a great experience this holiday season.
“It was important for Parks & Recreation to again get creative and find a way to say ‘yes’, to be able to offer safe outdoor recreation for our community this winter,” said Garrett Jones, director of City of Spokane Parks & Recreation. “Our team has worked closely with the Spokane Regional Health District to develop a solid operational plan, and we maintain great open lines of communication with the state. We’ll continue to monitor, evaluate, and adjust -- always with a goal of providing safe, positive, uplifting recreation with our partners and community.”
Riverfront will follow the Professional Sports & Other Sporting Activities guidelines for COVID-19, and also exceed previous Indoor Fitness and Training guidelines. Riverfront will provide 400 square feet per person; the Numerica Skate Ribbon is 14,860 square feet and capable of supporting 37 people under this standard. Tickets will be good for one hour of skating, to regulate the number of skaters on the ice and serve more people in the community.
“In these challenging times, we are focused on delivering safe, joyful, and unique programming for our community,” said Jon Moog, director of Riverfront Park. “Ice skating around the ribbon downtown has quickly become an iconic Spokane experience, and with some significant changes in place, we’re thrilled to open this year.”
We can’t wait to welcome the community to the ribbon. Here are a few things to know ahead of time, and we appreciate everyone’s help following the guidelines. We’re in this together.
