Red Deer rinks to be ready for weekend
City of Red Deer workers were busy building, icing and fine-tuning community outdoor rinks throughout the week, and most will be ready for the weekend.
After resources were pulled to assist with snow plowing throughout the city after recent snowstorms, city workers returned to building the rinks. All but three community outdoor rinks were expected to be operational by the end of Friday. Trevor Poth, parks superintendent, said only Davenport, Devonshire and Ironstone may be delayed.
Poth was optimistic that Davenport and Devonshire could be completed by Friday, but Ironstone’s rink will take a little longer. This is due to the new lights they have put in for the rink and the crews have been working through electrical issues.
Bower Ponds has been open since last weekend.
