It would appear everything is finished now. I am guessing they are waiting for the pandemic to be over?   Discovery Green by Marc longoria, on Flickr   Discovery Green

I think this is going to be really neat.

November 27th through January 19th

Discovery Green Ice Skating

I stopped by the park yesterday and they were either doing regular maintenance (draining and cleaning) the part of the lake closest to the building right behind the stage or they were prepping it for the rink. Seems a little early to be prepping it, but then again I don't know how long it would take.

I cant wait to take the wife and kids to this

They are preparing it for the rink... they have drain it and install special pipes and stuff to make the skating rink. I believe I read that on DG's website.

I'm guessing that you never skated on the temporary ice rink that was in front of the Wortham for the last several years.

Really? Man, I gotta get out more.. They put it on the concrete out there?

At least the Galleria/Mem Mall rinks don't have to compete with direct sunlight.. Plus.. I would venture to guess indoors it would never get more than 80 degrees.. I've had many a christmas day in shorts and t-shirt..

I guess I can "ice skate" in shorts and a t-shirt now too!

:P

I'd like to try the ice skating rink this year. I've only ice skated once in my life and that was at Astroworld's Holiday in the Park. Does Astroworld still do that?

I prefer roller skating.

There is no Astroworld. :( They closed down years ago.

the burgers at the lake house are pretty damn tasty... now if only the food at the grove could catch up with the ambiance

Its a good burger...and the sweet potato fries are tasty. But boy do they drill you. Burger, fries, and iced tea is $12+. I know I'm not eating at McDonald's, but come on.

Shouldn't the City of Houston plan annual New Years Eve celebrations at Discovery Green? I don't think Houston currently has an annual event, but Discovery Green would make for the perfect place to have one.

I thought they were going to have annual New Years Eve celebrations on Main Street... did that ever happen? Discovery Green would also be a good place to have something.

Not a bad idea... but you know how things work around here... lets hope for the best.

Looking at that parkcam, I can't help but think of the furor I started on a long since locked Victory thread when I linked to WFAA's plazacam...and the plaza was empty. :blush:

Ice rink is packed at 3:20 pm, as well.

i believe it's open til MLK day.

I was around the 12/26, and the security guard mentioned 1/12.

Maybe they bumped it up a week, but MLK day makes sense, but it is usually cold throughout February too. They should have kept it at least until Valentines Day weekend.

BTW, it looks much smaller in person than the photos reveal. Kinda disappointing.
