Paradise to open Ice Skating Rink

Jul 3, 2013 6:17 PM

With triple-digit temperatures still hitting the North State, thoughts of an ice skating rink sound very refreshing right about now.

Well, that idea is becoming a reality. The Paradise Recreation and Park District will open an ice skating rink this fall.

This project is two years in the making and carries a total cost of $160,000. Half of the cost is a one-time expense for permanent power transformers. The park district has already received $40,000 from sponsors and donations. It plans on making up the rest of the money in admission and concessions.

“We’re thinking it’s going to affect businesses real well,” said Paradise Recreation and Park District manager Mike Trinca. “We think this will make Paradise a destination point and people will hopefully visit our restaurants and visit our hotels and spend a little Paradise money.”

The ice skating rink will be open from mid-November until early January. The cost for skate rentals and all-day rink access costs $10.
