[November 27, 2022]   On Friday evening, Logan County Board Chair Emily Davenport, board member Jim Wessbecher and Becky Strait of the Lincoln Park District snipped the ribbon on the new ice skating rink in Scully Park in Lincoln.

The synthetic skating rink is stage two of a play project in the park and is in the same plot as the pickleball court that opened earlier this year.

Davenport spoke before snipping the ribbon, thanking the Lincoln Park District for working with the county to manage the rink.

The skating rink was paid for by the county using funding designated for such projects within the community.

The rink features synthetic ice surrounded by a white picket fence, and an equipment rental shed at the rink entrance.

Guests who wish to use the rink may purchase tickets online at the Lincoln Park District website or the window of the equipment shed.

Guests may bring their skates or rent skates when they arrive.

The ice rink opens this weekend and will remain open through the middle part of January.

Several were in attendance for the ceremony in spite of the extremely chilly temperatures. Among those on hand were several city of Lincoln representatives include Mayor Tracy Welch, Aldermen Sam Downs, Rick Hoefle and Tony Zurkammer, and Treasurer Chuck Conzo. Also on hand was Beth Davis Kavelman with the county and also County Clerk Theresa Moore and Treasurer Penny Thomas.

Off to the side of the rink, the Brew 66 beverage truck was selling warm beverages.

The rink will be staffed by LPD, and will include supervisors on the "ice."

For those unfamiliar with skating, skate aids will be available from the equipment shed.
