Albuquerque’s skating rink sees spike in participants

Synthetic Rink

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – It appears people really got into the holiday spirit this year by using the ice skating rink in Albuquerque’s Civic Plaza.

The city says within 38 days the synthetic rink brought in more than 2,300 skaters. The rink finished out the season on New Year’s Eve, where almost 1,800 people showed up for the celebration.

The rink first debuted last year. This year it was five times bigger. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
