A man and a woman hold hands while ice skating at the Parker Ice Trail.

Roses are red. Violets are blue. Here’s some Valentine’s ideas for you. 

Skate The Ice Trail 

Lace up your skates for a visit to the Parker Ice Trail at Discovery Park. The 450-foot ice ribbon weaves through the park reminiscent of a frozen river or canal. Off the ice, skaters can cozy up at fire pits and enjoy hot chocolate from the concessions stand. 

Find hours, admissions and skate rental information on the Ice Trail webpage

See A Show

The PACE Center and Schoolhouse stages host a lineup of theatrical productions, musical performances, national tours, stand-up comedy and more entertaining acts in February and all year round. Might we suggest Shakespeare in Love presented by the Parker Symphony Orchestra on Feb. 24?
