BOONE, Iowa—It didn’t take Mother Nature long to put a damper on ice skaters in Boone. Neil Olson, Boone Park Superintendent said Thursday that the Skate Pond is being closed until further notice. Olson says the mild weather led to quite a bit of snow melt and the ice at the pond is covered with water. He says once conditions improve, the pond will be re-opened. Olson also says they will still take names for volunteers to help with the warming house. Those that are interested should call the City Park Office and leave a message.
