Curling sheet, mini golf come to Olde Town in lieu of ice rink this holiday season

Ice rink that debuted in 2020 shelved over logistical hurdles

Posted

Visitors to Arvada’s Olde Town Square this holiday season will be treated to curling, mini golf and fire pits in leu of the ice rink that debuted in the square last year.

Olde Town Business Improvement District Executive Director Joe Hengstler said that “logistical hurdles” prevented the ice rink from returning.

The curling sheet can be rented at a booth in Olde Town Square. Golf clubs can also be rented from the booth and fire pits are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Hengstler said that the synthetic ice deployed in the square last year was not a suitable option going forward.

“With the skating rink, the Square has a number of logistical hurdles that limit what we can do with a skating rink,” Hengstler said. “Overall, we would really prefer to have real ice for people to skate on, but that’s not a possibility and that has to do with how level the square is.”

Hengstler added that some iteration of an ice rink could retun to Olde Town in the future.

“It’s at least a possibility, as Olde Town continues to evolve, so I’m not going to rule it out,” Hengstler said.

Mini golf rentals and the curling sheet are available Monday through Thursday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday through Sunday 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
