ELKHART – The last couple of weeks have been hit or miss when it comes to really cold weather and snowfall.
It can be a trying time for facilities that depend on the cold, like outdoor ice skating parks. One ice skating park in Elkhart does not have a problem keeping its ice ready in slightly warmer temperatures.
From December through March, with a few exceptions, there is a continuous flow of skaters out on the Nibco Water and Ice Park. Skaters can choose to skate in front or follow the path at the facility which is now entering into its fifth season. Jim Meuninick brought family and friends to the ice park on Tuesday.
“It’s nice to come out,” said Meuninick. “It’s pretty inexpensive, something to do when it’s cold outside, and makes the winter a little more bearable.”
