Canal Park - 300 S Main St

Enjoy three weeks of ice sculptures in varying themes as part of Downtown Akron Partnership’s Winter on the Boardwalk. The exhibit runs Jan. 10-30 at the Diamond Boardwalk, the walkway between Canal Park Stadium and Cilantro on S. Main Street.

Winter on the Boardwalk is intended to showcase a whimsical and entertaining winter installation before or after visiting dining and retail destinations at the Main and Exchange Street area. This project is possible through support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

The ice sculptures, created by Elegant Ice Creations, are placed every Thursday afternoon and will have a different theme each week. Lighting and music is provided by Lost Tribe Media to enhance the display and create a welcoming atmosphere. The Diamond Boardwalk is accessible from Main Street and the Towpath Trail either on foot or bicycle.
