Opening Rink Update: Opening Delayed

Posted on Monday, January 11, 2021 10:29 AM

Aurora's four outdoor ice pads (2 at Ada Johnson Park and 2 at Town Park) originally anticipated to open today, are unfortunately still not ready for public use.  The temperatures overnight on the weekend did not get as cold as anticipated and that coupled with sunny, milder weather has delayed the process. The ice is not solid enough for safe skating and will remain closed.  The second ice pad at Town Park is also experiencing some additional issues, which staff are working to rectify.
