Time to lace up your skates and hit the fresh ice in Downtown Phoenix! CitySkate, presented by the Arizona Lottery, brings the magic to the heart of the city at CityScape Phoenix for a five-week run through Jan. 1, 2023.
Located at Patriots Park (11 W. Washington St.) in the center of CityScape Phoenix, the real ice CitySkate rink will feature glittering lights, festive décor and a variety of family-friendly festivities to bring in the holiday cheer this season.
“CitySkate has become a staple holiday tradition for families and friends all over the Valley,” said Emily Park, vice president of marketing for CityScape Phoenix. “Thousands of locals come out to participate and it’s rewarding to know that so many people walk away with memories that they will cherish forever. There will be a number of special promotions and exciting events in partnership with the Arizona Lottery this season, so keep an eye on social media and our website for updates.”
