Skate at Lafayette Today & Free Skating Inside

Dec. 23 2016

Hi Neighbors,

Happy Holidays!

The ice at Lafayette seems ok thanks to the City of Duluth crews, neighbor Ricky Lyle and a small crew of volunteers tending the ice and building access.
The intent is to have lower Lafayette open from 10am to 10 pm over the holiday break if the ice looks good and the temperature is reasonable.
If you head over to use the rink, would you sign in at the counter? We would like to see who is using the park, thank you.
 Thank you and happy skating!
Please call with questions
