A few Palos Heights aldermen are pondering a synthetic ice rink for Community Park.
Relatively low cost and maintenance requirements and portability make bringing an all-season rink to Palos Heights an appealing prospect to some alderman, The Regional reports. Alderman Mike McGrogan recently touted the possibility:
“It’s pretty amazing,” McGrogan said. “Alderman Clifford and I and some others have said for a long time ‘wouldn’t it be nice to have some kind of rink for the kids.’ It’s hard to believe but it’s like 4-by-8 sheets that are like plywood and glossed. You can use regular skates on them and it looks just like a rink that is maintained with water and pipes … like if you went to the United Center.
Others all-season rinks in the Chicago area can be found in South Barrington, Highland Park and Roselle, according to the report.
Does a local rink appeal to you? Would you use it? Tell us in the comments.
