It may be Halloween, but Redmond City Officials are gearing up for a fun winter sport - ice-skating.
Heather Richards with the City of Redmond says they are able to keep fees the same this year. "Our goal was to be able to offer the ice skating rink at the most economical cost for our residents, while still not underwriting the operations with public tax dollars. And we came out at the end of last years' season netting $113. So we were able to keep the fees at: $1 to use the rink and $3 for rentals."
Richards says they averaged about 200 skaters a day last year and believe that it may be even more popular this year.
The Redmond Ice Rink is part of the Centennial Park project and is scheduled to open November 16th, right before the Thanksgiving school break.
