St. Paul Ice rink updates

To no one’s surprise, the City of St. Paul Department of Parks and Recreation has decided to end skating season early this year.

“Due to the warm temps, non-refrigerated rinks are quickly melting and no longer have skateable ice. Given the predicted temperature outlook, our staff and dedicated volunteers are no longer able to maintain quality levels of ice,” the department said in a statement.

Parks and Recreation officials are asking people to stay off of the closed rinks to prevent damage and for safety reasons. They added that the ice rinks should never be used as dog parks, even when the rink is closed.
