Arctic Cold Means Opportunity for Outdoor Enthusiasts

(La Porte, IN) - Many people don't like the bitter cold but the artic like temperatures experienced lately are good for people who enjoy doing things outside in the winter.


For example, there’s been no shortage of ice recently at the skating rink at Soldiers Memorial Park next to Pine Lake Ave.  Parks Superintendent Mark Schreiber said there’s probably been more consecutive days of ice on the skating rink this year than any winter from the recent past.  “Take advantage of that opportunity,” he said.


He said the sledding hill at Kesling Park has also had plenty of snow cover since the start of the mild winter become more blustery since January 1.


The trails at Kesling Park are also being cleared of snow so they can be used by the public, Schreiber said.
