ARLINGTON SQUARE ICE RINK FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are ice rink expenses covered by general fund tax dollars?
Carson City Recreation runs the ice rink with the same mandate as all other programs to recover 100% of direct costs. During the 2011-12 season the rink recovered 98% of direct cost. The revenues for the 2012-13 season met 100% of direct cost.
Are there group rates?
Yes, groups of 20 or more can skate for a discounted rate of $5 per skater including skates. We would prefer advanced notice.
What happens in case of inclement weather?
Operation of the Arlington Square Ice Rink is weather and ice condition dependent. The varied weather conditions we experience in Carson City such as sun, wind, rain and snow create challenges in keeping ice that is safe and suitable for skating at an outdoor rink. Please make sure to call the Arlington Square Ice Rink HOTLINE at 775-283-7629 or checking Facebook at www.facebook.com/ccprdept prior to visiting the rink to ensure that it is open and operating.
