To mitigate the virus’s spread, the rink will be limited to 125 skaters at a time. Masks will also be required by all patrons and employees while inside Skating in the Park’s boundaries. Social distancing should be practiced when possible. Employees will wipe down all surfaces with disinfectant every 90 minutes and will disinfect all skates and scooters when they are returned.
Skate rentals are $5. For adults, that makes the total admission price $15 and then $10 for kids under 9 years of age. You are allowed to bring your own skates and not pay the rental fee. You can also rent a scooter for $5.

The ice is then painted white before layering the ice with more water. The floor is connected to a chiller that circulates the fluid to keep the ice frozen.
