SPOKANE – A few maintenance projects will have minor impacts on Riverfront Park visitors beginning next week.

The park will remain open with many activities, and this weekend, it’s the perfect place to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Valentines on Ice at the Numerica Skate Ribbon offers two skate admissions and two skate rentals for $14; add a heart-shaped pizza to share for just $12. The sweetheart special runs Saturday, Feb. 12 – Monday, Feb. 14.

The ice season ends Feb. 28, making this the perfect time to glide the ice before it’s gone.

Meanwhile, a few maintenance projects will begin next week in preparation for a busy summer.
