Public Ice Skating

The Ice Arena will re-open Thursday, July 11th.

On Friday, February 23rd, we discovered a small ammonia leak in our ice rink compressor/chiller room.  Unfortunately, the initial repairs were unsuccessful and the ice rink compressor/chiller was turned off to stop the ammonia leak.  The actual amount of ammonia that leaked was minimal and the Hazardous Materials team gave us the all clear to be in the building.    The new equipment will take up to 8 weeks to be delivered and another couple of weeks to be installed.  Without this equipment, it is not possible to keep the ice rink frozen.  
 
Once the new equipment arrives and is installed, we will need an additional 2 to 3 weeks to rebuild and paint the ice.  We hope to be back up and open to the public, by the end of May or the beginning of June 2024.
