Outdoor skating season starts


Evanston officials say public ice skating is now available at Ackerman Park and the Arrington Lagoon in Dawes Park.

But there's a problem at the third outoor ice rink site. Public Works crews say the liner for the rink at Baker Park appears to have been damaged by someone skating before the open sign was posted at the rink.

Repairs will be attempted and city staff hope it will open soon.

With snow expected this weekend, further maintenance on the rinks likely will be delayed until after snow removal efforts are complete.
