From November through the beginning of January, the lawn at Triangle Park is transformed into a winter wonderland with the Unified Trust Company Ice Rink. For a nominal fee, you can take to the ice in the glow of Lexington’s official Christmas Tree bringing a unique experience for guests and locals of all ages. A warm mug of hot chocolate at DoubleH BBQ completes the skating experience. In its first year, the Unified Trust Company Ice Rink welcomed over 22,000 skaters and an additional 65,000 visitors to Triangle Park and Downtown Lexington. When organizations like Unified Trust Company provide support for the production of community attractions, all of Lexington wins. On behalf of the Triangle Park Foundation and Downtown Lexington Corporation, we would like to give a sincere thanks to Unified Trust Company for their continued support.
