Outside ice rink coming to city

Posted: Updated:

Downtown Flint will soon have an outside ice rink.

The University of Michigan-Flint is partnering with Kettering University and the Hagerman Foundation to open the rink on Jan. 2.

Once the rink opens there will be free skating to the public on Wednesday evenings and Saturday and Sunday afternoons through March at the University Pavilion.

"We are delighted to partner with UM-Flint to continue a great tradition — free community ice skating in Flint during the winter," said Kettering University President Dr. Robert K. McMahan. “The free community ice skates we held at Kettering University's Atwood Stadium the past two winters have been great successes, and we have seen people from all over Flint taking advantage of the opportunity to skate outside in such a great venue.”

The outside rink first opened in 1985 and closed in 1990.
