Snowbank Rink in Rutherford Park
Update on Rutherford Snow Bank Rink – the warmer temperatures are creating conditions that will push back the installation of the rink. The initial set up and flooding of the surface requires temperatures colder than minus 5, and at least 48 hours of temperatures colder than minus 5 for the ice to set properly before anyone is allowed on the ice. Forecast daytime highs and some of the nighttime lows for the next week are warmer than minus 5.
We know the community is excited about the rink, but our goal is to get a solid foundation upon set up so we can all enjoy the surface for the duration of the skating season with minimal downtime for major repairs.
Thanks for your patience and support!
