This winter has really been a bummer for outdoors people. There really hasn't been a good amount of snow that's stuck around, and we've ended up with a bunch of ice on our trails. Well that didn't stop this group of folks. They took ice skates to the trails of Lester Park for some extreme winter fun.
The City Of Duluth Parks and Recreation Department announced this week that they have closed the Bayfront Park Ice Rink for the remainder of the winter season, although free indoor skating events remain an option.
Recently the skating rink at Bayfront Festival Park closed for a few days due to the subzero weather conditions. Hopefully the thermometer will cooperate and the rink can remain open. Keep in mind the rink would close if wind chills reach -20 degrees Fahrenheit or if warm weather creates melted puddles on the ice.
