Lagoon and Ice Rink Feature Coming to Pittsburgh
“Esplanade’s lagoon will be situated in the coldest weather climate of any Crystal Lagoons amenity worldwide to date,” Millcraft and Crystal Lagoons said in a joint press release. “Crystal Lagoons has seen a growing demand for development of ice skating-capable concepts in colder-climate cities, since the company’s crystalline lagoons can naturally freeze or can freeze with the addition of supplemental technology.”
During summer months, locals and tourists alike will be able to swim, kayak, paddleboard and relax in the 2-acre public access lagoon. During colder months, the swimming area will close and a portion of the lagoon will transform into an ice-skating rink. Thermal baths will be open year-round.
