Ice skating permitted on Veterans Park’s seasonal rink



Billings, Montana – At Veterans Park in the Magic City, Parks and Recreation have started using its seasonal ice rink.

The establishment of this ice rink is one of the staff’s favorite seasonal tasks, according to Mike Pigg, Superintendent of Parks.

“Every year, we try and provide a skate rink and when it gets cold enough then we get it going. My staff loves doing this. It’s one way we can give back to the community and we provide this for anybody who wants to come skate. There is no cost,” explained Mike.

One of the skaters on the Billings Bulls team, Cohen Walds, noted that he practices at the ice rink every day in preparation for his forthcoming competition in Helena.

“I like to come here as much as I can so that I can practice with my father to prepare for the tournament this weekend in Helena,” emphasized Cohen.

According to Billings Parks and Recreation, the rink will remain open until mid-February as long as the weather is below 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
