AMES, Iowa — An Ames park is about to get two new outdoor ice rinks.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening will take place at South River Valley Park in Ames on Wednesday, Dec. 19 at 1 p.m.
WHO Channel 13 reports the two rinks will each serve a different purpose. One rink will be used for ice hockey, while the other rink is reserved for skating. There will be no fee required to use either of the rinks, but users will need to bring their own equipment.
Ames Minor Hockey Association initially reached out to the Iowa Wild seeking a possible donation toward the the project. The Iowa Wild and Wells Fargo teamed up to donate a rink, as part of an effort to encourage ice skating and outdoor recreation.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony is open to the public and will take place at 1200 E. 13th St. in Ames.
