GREEN BAY – The Green Bay Packers launched their Titletown.com website Tuesday, which provides a host of useful information about the team's park near Lambeau Field.
Among the information available on the website is the cost for skating and tubing at Titletown District's pond and snow hill. The skating pond and trail are scheduled to open at 3 p.m. Thursday and will cost $5 on weekdays, $7 on weekends, $9 on game days and $2 on twice-a-month community days. Skate rental is $5, but $1 on community days.
The website also includes a calendar of events, photo gallery, description of classes and programs, a live webcam and more.
Also opening Thursday will be 46 Below bistro and Rockwood Terrace event space, and the district will launch its Winter Jubilee Light Show, which will continue through Dec. 30.
The team confirmed Tuesday the tubing hill will be named Ariens Hill, after sponsor Ariens Co. of Brillion. Ariens President and CEO Dan Ariens is on the Green Bay Packers seven-member executive committee.
Ariens Hill will open later this year, when weather is cold enough to allow snow to be made and maintained. The hill will include three snow-making machines and grooming equipment.
The hill is 46 feet high with 100-yard-long tubing lanes. It includes an automated tube-return system.
"We look forward to Ariens Hill becoming a destination for families and the community to come together, enjoy the outdoors and have some fun," Ariens said.
Tubing will cost $10 on weekdays and weekends for unlimited rides and $5 for single rides. The cost will be $12 and $7, respectively, on game days, and $5 for unlimited rides on community nights.
Family, weekend and group packages are available for skating and tubing.
The three playgrounds in the district as well as some gaming options will remain available as long as weather permits. The regulation-size, artificial turf football field will remain open. All are free.
Titletown District is a nearly 45-acre development bounded primarily by South Ridge Road, Lombardi Avenue, Brookwood Drive and Marlee Lane. Its anchors include Lodge Kohler hotel, Hinterland Brewery and Bellin Health Sports Medicine and Orthopedics clinic, all of which are open. The Packers and Microsoft announced plans for TitletownTech, a technology and innovation center, expected to open in fall 2018.
