R Recreation confirmed today, December 15th, that the ice skating rink in Riverton will not be able to open on December 18th as they had hoped.
The base was damaged by an individual or group before it was frozen solid, R Rec Director Mary Axthelm shared with County 10. This, unfortunately, means the City of Riverton Employees who have worked hard to get it going will have to start over.
They are hoping to open mid to late next week.
Here are a few details R Rec has shared once the rink is open:
- We will be open 1-8 pm daily through Christmas break.
- Skaters will not be allowed in the Red Shed due to Covid precautions (skates will be rented through the window) so dress warm!
- There will be a limit to 50 skaters on the rink.
- We ask that you please stay home if you are not feeling well.
The latest updates can be found on the R Recreation Facebook page. County 10 will also keep you updated.
