Rink Of Dreams Still On Schedule

- September 22nd, 2011

Time to get those last Frisbee throws in on City Hall’s front lawn before the construction machines move in.

The Rink of Dreams project remains on schedule for a December opening and the groundbreaking is expected next week, a city spokesman tells me. The contractors have been hired and site preparation is only days away.

A delay for the groundbreaking hasn’t slipped up the project. The grass was originally scheduled to be dug up in August, but those plans created big problems for Capital Pride, which has used Marion Dewer Plaza for the annual celebration. The city put off the rink work to accommodate Pride.

The city will want to have everything in order in time for NHL all-star weekend Jan. 28-29. The new refrigerated rink has been touted as a possible venue for some all-star-related activities.
