Devon Ice Rink Opens Nov. 11 – Jan. 29 at Myriad Botanical Gardens

Oklahoma City, OK — The Devon Ice Rink opens to the public Friday, Nov. 11 at the Myriad Botanical Gardens as part of Downtown OKC Inc.’s Downtown in December celebration. Now in its sixth year at the Gardens, the Devon Ice Rink will be open through Jan. 31 and promises big fun for the whole family!

“We are so pleased and excited to embark on our sixth skating season at the Gardens,” said Maureen Heffernan, executive director of the Myriad Gardens Foundation. “It’s a great activity for families, and it’s something people can enjoy all winter, and we appreciate Devon Energy for making it possible. Make it part of your holiday planning and winter activities. It’s cool for out-of-town guests and, of course, we can’t think of a lovelier location! Even if you don’t skate, it’s fun to watch the skaters and enjoy the festive holiday atmosphere at the Gardens.”

Christina Rehkop, manager of Community Relations for Devon, said the company is pleased to sponsor the ice rink. “It’s about fun with family and friends in a beautiful setting that brings people together,” Rehkop said. “We hope the Devon Ice Rink adds to the holiday spirit and sense of community in downtown OKC.”

Did you ever watch the Olympics and think ‘Hey, I want to do that!” Well, here’s one Olympic sport you can do. For one and a half hours, the Oklahoma Curling Club will walk you through the basic rules and etiquette of curling, explain the how’s and why’s of delivering and sweeping a stone, and get you on the ice enjoying the sport of curling together! Dress warm, wear rubber soled shoes, and prepare for the most fun you can have with a broom this side of Quidditch! All other equipment will be provided by the Oklahoma Curling Club.

The Myriad Botanical Gardens is one of Oklahoma City’s most beloved public spaces, offering its visitors a 15 acre natural escape in the very heart of downtown. A half-acre children’s garden, an off-leash dog park, splash fountains, and paths for walking and jogging provide guests young and old with a place to seek solitude with nature, or seek community and the company of others. Additionally, the Myriad Gardens offers a variety of horticultural education programs for adults and children.

The Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory’s unique design has earned attention and praise in the architectural community. It is 224 feet long, 70 feet in diameter, and is covered by 3,028 sections of translucent, double-layered acrylic panels. The Conservatory includes 13,000 square feet of plant display area in two distinct climates: the Tropical Wet Zone, which is at the south end and is watered daily; and the Tropical Dry Zone at the north end which receives water from April through September, followed by drought from November through March. Some 700 varieties of plants and a cascading waterfall round out the spectacular features of the Conservatory.
