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

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.
