Extended Season Policy

Weather permitting, the Buhr Park Ice Rink season may be extended for a maximum of two weeks.  Buhr Park management will determine if the weather will enable the ice arena to continue operating at an efficient level after the scheduled March 29 closing date.  If the predicted high temperature (per will be consistently below 45 degrees, Buhr​​ Park will continue limited public skating and drop-in hockey times for up to one week.  The procedure will be followed again for the following week to determine if the ice arena will be open for up to a second additional week.  ​
