Skating rink may open this weekend

Milaca Parks Departmemt’s Greg Weller said crews hope to have Milaca’s ice skating rink at Recreation Park operational by this weekend.

Low moisture levels in the soil and a possible leak have drained several coats of water parks employees have attempted to lay so far this year, but a top coat should be ready to apply any day now.

The rink is free and open to the public. Last year, warm temperatures prevented the rink from maintaining enough ice to be open.
