The 1,000-foot long Ribbon is a paved, loop trail that is refrigerated in winter to provide 25,000-square-feet of ice skating surface with rolling hills and soft curves. It includes a 5,000-square-foot ice skating rink called the Pond that is suitable for beginning skaters and events. Fourteen miles of tubing under the pavement supplies refrigerant to the surface, while a Zamboni ice resurfacing machine will maintain a smooth skating surface. Ice skating is available throughout the cold weather season with the inaugural skating season. Admissions and skate rental will be available at the Market Hall building located near The Ribbon. Advanced reservations are required.
In warm weather, The Ribbon will be a multi-purpose trail that will be free to use for walking, roller skating and scooters.
