Superior Moves To Reduce Outdoor Ice Rinks By One
This winter, ice skating enthusiasts will probably see one less outdoor rink option. The Parks and Recreation Commission is recommending that the City of Superior doesn't flood the rink that currently exists at the location of Veterans Memorial Park in the North end. Costs and the small number of users is cited as the reason behind the move.
According to news sources, the city's Parks, Recreation, and Forestry Director Linda Cadotte says that the rink only gets used by a dozen kids a week during the winter. There are also available rinks nearby which can be used. Officials also recognize that the area would be less wet in spring - as the ice melts - which would allow the outdoor space to be used for other activities sooner than later.
The Superior City Council takes up the discussion for action at their next meeting - happening Tuesday, November 5 at the City-County Building's Council Chambers.
