The Fountain Square ice rink returned on Monday



CINCINNATI – Just a day after Halloween, Cincinnatians avid for winter and upcoming vacations can once again have fun on the ice at Fountain Square.

On Monday, the rink reopened for those looking to put on their skates or those looking for a bumpier ride in the bumper cars.

“Ice skating in Fountain Square is one of Greater Cincinnati’s most cherished vacation traditions,” Tamara Lang, director of community relations for UC Health, said in a press release. “We are proud to partner with 3CDC and Fifth Third Bank to provide our community with a safe and meaningful gathering place during the holiday season. ”

The rink reopens with COVID-19 procedures in place, including a timed reservation system to allow fewer people on the ice at the same time.

After last year’s success, bumper cars will return, running alongside ice skating seven days a week.

For now, the ice rink is open with limited reservations and reduced prices. There will be an official opening celebration on Saturday, as the Fountain Square holiday tree – hopefully with more vitality than last year’s viral conifer – arrives.

Earlier this year, Fountain Square opened a full-service container bar. According to a press release, the bar will remain open for the winter, coinciding with the opening hours of the ice rink and equipped with heaters, so those who wish to stay off the ice can still enjoy the place.
