Rinks and warming houses were planned to open Friday, December 21, 2018 but due to continual warm weather conditions prior to that date, the ice that was built up was continuing to deteriorate. After further rain and snow in late December, rinks were still not in good condition to open. City crews have been flooding rinks the past several days, to build the ice back up to safe conditions, and now the goal is to move forward keeping the rinks open as long as possible as weather permits.
