Watts Ice Center Closed Due to High Temperatures

Due to a high volume of unseasonably warm temperatures, the Watts Ice Center rinks will close for the season today.

 

Watts Ice Center is traditionally open from the day after Thanksgiving through the end of February. During cold winters, the rink at times is able to stay open into March; in warmer winters, the rink has closed early due to the sun and high temperatures. 

 

Unfortunately, the rink’s cooling system cannot compete with the 50 and 60 degree temperatures that have occurred this weekend and are expected to continue through the week. The rink staff has been monitoring ice conditions and performing ice maintenance consistently throughout the season and with increased frequency of the last week, but the warm weather has melted the ice beyond repair.

 

All rentals, classes, drop-in hockey times, and public skate scheduled through Tuesday, February 28 are now canceled.
