Downtown Ice Rink a Hit

(La Porte, IN) - Another weekend of ice skating in downtown La Porte is right around the corner.


So far, officials say the response from the public to the refrigerated rink has been pretty good. As a result, several time slots for this evening and the rest of the weekend have already been reserved.


However, Parks Superintendent Mark Schreiber said plenty of openings are still available.


“We got a couple of large groups, a youth group and a couple of families that are coming in tonight and tomorrow so we encourage everyone else to register,” Schreiber said.

People can reserve a time at laporteparkandrec.com. The cost to skate is $5. Skate rental is $3. Reservations are strongly encouraged, and no cash payments are accepted.


The ice rink at Lincolnway and Monroe Street will be there until the end of the month. It’s open from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.
