Many people in Middle Tennessee love doing things outdoors, and this winter it will be easier to stay active, thanks to a new outdoor ice skating rink set to open in Murfreesboro on Saturday.
The rink is at Fountains at Gateway near Saint Thomas Rutherford. There will be holiday decorations, photos with Santa, and special events such as “Movies on Ice” film screenings, live concerts and themed skate nights. The rink will be open through Jan. 3.
Fountains at Gateway is a new development that includes office buildings, stores and restaurants, with plans also for apartments and a hotel.
“Winterfest” featuring the ice rink is designed to be an annual event.
“We are truly delighted to introduce Winterfest at Fountains and bring outdoor ice skating to Murfreesboro,” developer Scott Graby, president of Hearthstone Properties, said in a news release. “Winterfest is the first of many community events we look forward to hosting at Fountains.”
The ice rink is also available to host corporate events, holiday parties, school spirit nights, and
church and youth events.
