by User Not Found | Nov 21, 2014

Yesterday we gave a sneak peek of Fort Worth's only outdoor ice skating rink to some very deserving students from Nash Elementary School. All third, fourth and fifth grade students were invited to be among the first to skate at Panther Island Ice.


“Our students and faculty work extremely hard to be recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School by the Department of Education,” said Nash Elementary Principal Blanca Galindo. “As the only elementary school to serve Panther Island, we couldn't be happier to partner with the Trinity River Vision Authority and reward our students with a fun morning at Panther Island Ice,” she said.


Back for its second year, the rink at Panther Island Ice is 50% larger than last year and the season will extend an extra two weeks until January 19. The ice rink is located at Coyote Drive-In and will have the Downtown skyline as a picturesque backdrop. The ice rink is separate from the drive-in and a ticket to Coyote is not necessary to skate. However, Panther Island Ice patrons can still utilize the ample parking along with other Coyote amenities such as restrooms and the popular Coyote Canteen.


Admission is $11 and includes skate rentals and sales tax. Discounts are available to active-duty military, Guard, Reservists and their families. Group discounts are also available for parties of 15 or more but advance arrangements must be made. Panther Island Ice is open seven days a week including holidays such as Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
