And there’s something arguably just as awesome at Chatfield: a synthetic ice-skating rink. It’s made of a recyclable polymer compound; bring $5 to rent skates, and you’re off! “It feels just like you’re skating on a frozen pond,” Jones says, “but if you fall down, you don’t get cold.”
Blossoms of Light and Trail of Lights both open tonight and run nightly from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. through January 1; admission ranges from $5 to $12 (free for kids age two and younger). The Denver location is at 1007 York Street, and the Chatfield location is at 8500 West Deer Creek Canyon Road in Littleton. Visit www.botanicgardens.org for more information.
