Spokane's Premier Ice Skating Experience

Riverfront Park’s ice ribbon consists of a 16' wide and 650' long pathway with a 3,500 square foot attached pond. Skaters can experience slight inclines and declines as they make their way around a path of ice surrounded by beautiful Northwest inspired landscape. Complementing the ribbon are large, cozy fire pits for spectators and skates alike to sit around and enjoy a cup of hot cocoa. The ice ribbon shares a ticketing facility with the SkyRide that includes a café with a variety of delicious food and large windowed dining area.

Activities All Winter Long

Nearly every day this winter, The Ice will be programmed with activities like free ice skating lessons, cheap skate nights, live music, themed dress up events (even for the dogs!), happy hours, and even Yoga on Ice! We have wonderful sponsors on board to help provide free and low-cost programs. Take a look at the Winter Activity Guide for a peek at programming.
