Metroparks Announces Special Ribbon Preview!

The community is invited to be the first to skate at The Ribbon at Glass City Metropark during limited behind-the-scenes preview days this February. During this special preview, capacity will be limited and advanced reservations are highly recommended. Preview prices, including skate rental, are $8 for adults and $6 for children. The experience is free for children 3 and younger.

The Ribbon, supported by the Hylant Family Foundation, is a 1,000 foot loop trail featuring rolling hills and soft curves for a uniquely Metroparks winter ice skating experience. The Ribbon is connected to a 5,000 square foot skating pond that offers a traditional ice rink experience for beginners and a series of special events and programs.

Ice skating is available throughout the cold weather season with the inaugural skating season set to open in November 2023 through February 2024. Admissions and skate rental will be available at the Market Hall building located near The Ribbon.

Tickets will go on sale on Thursday, January 26 at 10 a.m.

Advanced Reservations Required.
