Official details won’t be available until tomorrow, but here’s what we do know: the ice rink at Dilworth Park will make its big debut before Turkey Day!

The rink, which would temporarily replace the 11,600-square-foot fountain for the rest of the season, will be managed by a yet to be named operator selected by the Center City district from a competitive pool of applicants. Park amenities like outdoor seating, WiFi,  and Jose Garces’ Rosa Blanca cafe will continue to be available through the winter season, but the new feature will include ice skating lessons.

More details to come.
