Skating Rink

Ice Rink Events, a Houston-based designer, manufacturer, installer, and operator of ice rinks around the globe, transforms Kinder Lake’s model boat basin into a holiday skating destination each winter season at the park. The expanded rink uses equipment that runs on renewable energy and even the ice rink border is made from recycled plastic materials.
In the spring, the ice rink is transformed into an outdoor roller-skating rink. The Rink: Rolling at Discovery Green is open Feb 9, 2024 – Mar 31, 2024. Purchase tickets at
