Workers begin the conversion of the fountain into an ice rink.

After inaugurating and showing off its newly re-worked fountains with water spouts, Washington Harbour has shut it down and begun the seasonal conversion of the elliptical space into an ice rink—to be ready for skaters before Nov. 22.

According to Washington Harbour's owner MRP Realty, "The 11,800-square-foot Washington Harbour Ice Rink—larger than the rinks at Rockefeller Center in New York City or the National Gallery of Art’s Sculpture Garden in Washington—will be ready to welcome its first skaters before Thanksgiving. In addition to offering open skating, discounts to college students and the opportunity to skate with Santa Claus, the rink will accommodate parties and special events, such as birthdays, family gatherings and corporate events."

“The ice rink is another new amenity to Washington Harbour which will continue to become one of the premier recreational destinations in the District,” said Bob Murphy, managing principal of MRP Realty. “We look forward to expanding the waterfront experience here to more families, visitors and residents from across the D.C. metro area, seeking a lively, safe and sophisticated skating experience throughout this winter.”

Hours of operation for the ice rink will be noon to 9 p.m., Monday through Thursday; noon to 10 p.m., Friday; 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Sunday. Admission is $9 for adults, or $7 for children, seniors and military. Skate rental is $5, and skating lessons are available. The ice rink will end its season on or around March 1, when the facility will be seasonally converted into a fountain.
