Reservations will be available at 10 a.m. two days prior here.

During the winter, the new Parker Ice Trail at Discovery Park, located next to Parker's new Library on Mainstreet and Pine Drive, is available seven days a week. One of the only ice trails in the country, the new Parker skating path meanders through the park reminiscent of a frozen river or canal. Skaters or visitors can stay warm next to any of the three fire pits adjacent to the ice trail, or enjoy hot chocolate while watching skaters pass by. Concessions, skate rental and restroom facilities are available for all patrons visiting the park.
