DIXON – The Park District plans to open the new Page Park ice rink during the next few days as the bitter cold sets in the Sauk Valley.

The opening will be announced on the district’s Facebook page, and the hours will run from sunrise to 10 p.m. as long as the freeze holds.

Skate rentals will be available from 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. today and Friday as well as 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Cost is $3 an hour.

Pressing the green button on the warming shed will turn on the lights and music for the 60-by-100-foot ice rink set up at the basketball courts.

Call 815-284-3306, go to dixonparkdistrict.com or find the Dixon Park District on Facebook for ice skating updates, more information or volunteer opportunities.
