Zoo On Ice

Posted By on Wed, Sep 1, 2010 at 4:07 PM

It won't just be penguins skating around the Memphis Zoo this winter.

The Zoo announced today that it will build an outdoor ice-skating rink, to open in November.

The rink, which will be located near what's currently a picnic area between Teton Trek and Northwest Passage, will be a semi-permanent exhibit open from November through the end of January.

Zoo spokesperson Abbey Dane says the idea was inspired by the ice-skating rink in Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park.

"It's a huge success there," she said, "especially during the holidays."

The skating fee will be $6 with skate rental and $5 without.
