The Ice Rink has been created thanks to the selfless and extra efforts of many great volunteers including David Reynolds, David Napper, Ed Mason, Barry Morrison, Livy Hatch, Adam Perry, Evan George, and Matt Storey. If I have forgotten anyone, forgive me. The plan as of Sunday Jan 20th is to clear the snow once it has stopped falling, spray another layer of water to freeze, put the lights out and open the rink! Please come use the rink as long as the sign to “stay off the ice” is NOT UP. This rink is for the use of our entire community and we encourage you to use it as much as possible. The Ballard Park Association has been so kind to open their heating hut for skaters to take breaks from the cold. ENJOY!!!
