In case you haven't heard the big news yet, DGRI is transforming the lot on 555 Monroe Ave. NW, which hosted Movies on Monroe over the summer, into a pop-up ice rink for the public to enjoy. 

Guests can ice skate for free, provided they bring their own skates, or sign up to join a league should they desire something a little more competitive. Leagues include pond hockey, broom ball, and ice soccer through the Grand Rapids Sports & Social Club and drop-in hockey run by Wednesday Night Shinny. 

At this time, we cannot provide a concrete date as to when the ice rink will officially open, as it is largely weather-dependent, but stay tuned and we will provide regular updates on our social media platforms!
