Brenton Skating Plaza to Close for 2014 Season on March 9

March 7, 2014

Brenton Skating Plaza will be closing for the season on Sunday, March 9. The last session for public skating will be Sunday from Noon – 8 p.m.

“Closing the rink each season is always bittersweet, but more so this year,” says Robbin McClelland, General Manager of Brenton Skating Plaza. “It’s been a tough winter for us but we have a lot to look forward to. We’re not just closing the rink until the next skating season, we’re beginning a new adventure with the addition of the canopy to this space.”

Beginning June 2014, Brenton Plaza will have a one-of-a-kind canopy allowing for rain and sun protection while enjoying panoramic views of Downtown. This enables Brenton Plaza to function as a venue for ceremonies, social events, festivals, shows and concerts.

All media inquiries should be directed to Jessica Barlow at (515) 286-4907 or (563) 505-9226.
