Boone Parks Skate Rink In Use

Posted on 28 December 2016 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—It was a little bit of a rush, but the new skating rink, installed at the Gutterridge Park horse arena is now being used.  Part of the rush was getting the rink up, a new building constructed, lights installed and skates had to be moved from the old skate pond warming house.  Boone City Administrator Bill Skare said on the KWBG Tuned In show Wednesday that the skate rink is open, which means the Parks Department will be seeking volunteers to man the new warming building.  The Park Board is using the same guidelines for volunteers that were used in the past which does require a background check.  Hours have been set.

Rule for Ice Skating Rink
No skating when posted
Enter Rink from ramp only
Stay off yellow bumpers
No hitting pucks towards building
Hockey goals at South end ONLY
Ice Rink closes at 9 pm when the lights go off automatically.

Park personnel emphasized the 9:00 PM closing because once the lights from the rink go off, there is not other lighting at Gutterridge.

    It is my understanding that come spring it is to be converted back into a horse riding arena. Let’s hope that is true
