Traxler Park lagoon open for skating
The city is doing things the old-fashioned way, clearing snow from a section of the Traxler Park lagoon so residents can ice skate.
The lagoon, which officially opens tonight, has 5 inches of ice. A land rink next to the lagoon that features a new flooding system has not yet frozen.
The city built the flooding system in December 2011 by digging a depression and installing a series of pipes that flood the rink from the bottom. Cost was about $45,000.
