COLORADO SPRINGS — The wait is almost over to lace up your ice skates and get out on the rink at Acacia Park.

Skate in the Park at Acacia Park will open for its 2020-2021 season on Nov. 13 and stay open through the end of January.

Crews started the building process for the rink this week and plan to have the final level of the ground done next week, as well as laying down mats and installing lights. Equipment necessary for the ice sheet will then be brought in, and the ice should be ready by early next month.

Due to COVID-19, all ticket sales will be online to control capacity, and all current public health guidelines will be followed.

The tickets have not gone on sale yet, but they will be available on the Downtown Colorado Springs website soon.
