KAUKAUNA — City crews have begun flooding the Horseshoe Park Ice Rink, and frigid temperatures in the forecast should help get it ready this week.

Street Department workers Melanie Knott and Bill Leon were seen at the rink with a water hose to begin the process of getting the rink ready.

“It usually takes 4-5 (8-10 hour) days of very cold weather to complete the flooding of the ice rink,” according to Mayor Tony Penterman.

He said he expects the rink to open Wednesday, Feb. 10.

The restroom facilities will be open daily until 11pm.
