The 10,000 ft sq rink will rely on cold temperatures to keep the ice
Scotties Fun Spot opens it’s new outdoor ice rink for the season. “This is something that we have thought about doing for years,” mentions Jeff Scott co-owner, “people remember ice skating at Berrian or South Park many years ago, we decided it sounded like a lot of fun, which is what we’re all about.”
The 10,000 ft sq rink will rely on cold temperatures to keep the ice, but at only 4” deep will freeze faster than lakes or ponds. Scotties will carry a limited number of rental skates and also has the ability to sharpen privately owned ice skates. “We will be open every day (weather permitting), the schedule will cater to open skating, and also offer times for hockey players too”, mentions Jeff.
The facility has grown over the past 3 years to encompass over 2 acres of attractions. ”Offering ice skating was something my dad (Scottie) did at the old rink on north 12th some 60 years ago. says Bob Scott co-owner, “it’s only fitting that this would come full circle.”
