City Of Jackson Says That Skating Rink Is Done For The Year

Fri 2-2-2024

(Jackson)- The City of Jackson says that, with much regret in how the year turned out with warm temperatures, times of heavy rain and no precipitation, and overall variable weather, the Jackson Ice Skating Rink is done for the season. 

In a release, they say that they tried and struggled to make ice early in the season, but mild temperatures foiled those attempts, especially the rain around Christmas. When it finally did get cold, the brutally low temperatures made ice on the rink brittle and bad for skating, which created potholes, and then this latest warm weather killed off any chance of good skating this year. They say despite the setbacks, to stay tuned for next year on the ice.
