The Numerica Skate Ribbon opens today! Here’s what you need to know

SPOKANE, Wash. — Skating is back in season at the Numerica Skate Ribbon today!

The ice skating rink in Riverfront Park returns — and with some changes from last year’s experience.

Skaters are welcomed back to glide with family and friends along the 650-foot long pathway with inclines and declines.

There will also be firepits where skaters can go and warm up.

The Numerica Skate Ribbon also shares a space with the Sky Ribbon Café where you can enjoy delicious food.

Unlike last year — reservations will not be required. But you must wear a mask and skate groups must social distance.

You also might remember the skating zones keeping guests separated last year — those are no more!

Skate where you want, however fast you want, but keep your distance and be mindful of others.

The ribbon opens on Tuesday, Nov. 23 at 11 a.m. and closes at 9 p.m.

Admission (1 hour)
Adult (ages 13+): $7.95/per hour
Youth (ages 3-12): $5.95/per hour
Ages 2 and under: FREE

Skate Rental: $5.95/per visit
