Real Ice Will Return Downtown

Real ice will return to Downtown Windsor this winter.

City Council has approved an estimated $26,200 for the needed repairs to allow the operation of Charles Clark Square.

Repairs include work to the underground pipes, rink lighting, and work to the outside boards of the rink.

Back on October 29th, city administration had provided to council a report on the repairs that were needed to the rink.  That evening, council decided to use the synthetic ice that was purchased in 2013 this season to eliminate the need to spend the money on repairs.

After the meeting, Parks department staff attempted to configure the synthetic ice on a flat surface at a temporary site, but determined that the unevenness of the interlocking pieces would be a safety concern for the users and a liability to the city.

The real ice should be in place by December, weather permitting.
