Ice rink

The Murphy Arts District wants to know if South Arkansas residents are interested in an ice rink.

El Dorado’s Murphy Arts District is surveying public interest in bringing a full-sized ice rink to the city during the holiday season.

The proposal is to open the rink to the public from late November through early January, 2019-2020. Initial research indicates a very large interest from people as far away as Dallas and Little Rock.

MAD anticipates that the ice rink would be a six day a week draw (closed Mondays) for the entire holiday season. It would draw families, couples and teens to downtown El Dorado and contribute to the economy in both lodging, eating, and holiday shopping.

MAD's vendor/partner in this program is Ice-America, a provider in ice rink services since 2008. It provides rinks for Chicago's Navy Pier, SeaWorld Orlando, Legoland, and more.
