Bring the family and friends to experience the first and only ice rink in Johnson County!
In an article entitled "An Outdoor ice will be nice in Leawood," the first and only ice rink in Johnson County makes its debut. The article discusses the inspiration behind The Ice, the sustainable elements, and activities to expect for the rest of the year.
From the article:
"Winter jingles and holiday decorations will envelope skates at the rink for the next two months. Benches will be plentiful, for excited observes and parents to relax. A couple of the nearby restaurants will sell gourmet hot chocolate and specialty coffees."
"We wanted to create a unique outdoor amenity for people in the community," said Jeffrey Alpert, co-developer of Park Place. "Ice skating turned out to be the answer. And it is nice because the rink is now the central point of Park Place."
"The ice skating rink is not only ground-breaking for Johnson County, but it is part of national news as well. The rink will be one of the first in the United States to be environmentally friendly. Normally, ice on the rink is pained white - to hide the piping underneath. The Park Place ice skating rink is using an environmentally friendly coating, which will reflect heat."
