Ice rink at Rosa Parks Circle opens to skaters

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The ice rink at Rosa Parks Circle will be open for its regularly scheduled hours following unseasonably warm weather.

Rosa Parks Circle announced on Facebook Friday that its ice rink would open to skaters at 10 a.m.

The city opened Rosa Parks Circle for ice-skating during its holiday celebration and tree lighting on Dec. 3, but then closed it for about two weeks due to warm temperatures.

Admission is $1 for people ages 17 and under and $2 for adults. Skate rental is free with paid admission. The ice rink is open Monday through Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 9:45 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9:45 p.m. The open skate hours are weather dependent. More information can be found on the city’s website.

Grand Rapids hit 61 degrees Sunday, beating the previous Dec. 13 record of 57 degrees, according to Storm Team 8. That record was set in 1920.

**Correction: An earlier version of this article stated the ice rink was open for the first time this year. That was not correct. It was open earlier in December.
