There’s a new attraction in Cape Town and a first for the country – an outdoor synthetic ice rink has been installed at the Rotary Blue Train Park in Mouille Point.
A large project has been underway to restore and develop the Rotary Blue Train Park into a family outdoor play experience. It is open to the public or can be hired out as a children’s party venue.
It has undergone substantial refurbishment in the past 15 months, including painting of existing play equipment and garden landscaping.
The ice rink is a key part of the Park’s restoration project. Made of Xtraice Pro Panels, the ice panels are self-lubricated with the highest gliding degree in the industry. The rink is also environmentally friendly, as it does not require electrical power to operate. Similar ice rinks have been installed in 70 countries around the world, including entertainment parks like Disneyland. The installation of the ice rink has been the brainchild of Cape Town businessmen, Sean Holmes and Cornelis Ouwehand, who have lead the project.
Children can now enjoy gliding around an outdoor ice rink with spectacular views of the mountain and sea. For more information about the Rotary Blue Train Park, visit www.thebluetrainpark.co.za or contact 084 314 9200.
A great portion of the park’s operational proceeds are donated to Rotary. Everything else is invested back into park operations and maintenance.
