Canal Park is a new public park opening at 200 M St SE in the heart of Washington DC's Capitol Riverfront neighborhood. The park includes an outdoor ice skating rink which will be open 7 days a week weather permitting. During the warmer months of the year, the rink will become an open park with fountains. Canal Park opens with special events on November 16-17, 2012.

The weekend will kick off with a performance by the String Poets at 10:30 a.m. and a grand opening ceremony at 11 a.m. with remarks by Mayor Vincent Gray and other local officials. The ice skating rink will officially open at noon on Friday with free skating from 12 to 2 p.m. After 2 p.m., skate rental is $3; admission is $8 for adults and $7 for children, seniors, and military. On Saturday, enjoy skating, live music by The Singing Lizard, John Henry and Justin Traywick and family friendly activities such as face painting, fitness classes, and a kids obstacle course.
