The Redding Parks and Rec skating rink is closed to the public after the ice was damaged. Parks and Recreation Director Robert Blick says employees discovered a hole in the center of the rink Sunday, which was probably caused by misuse and he can only assume it was done on purpose. The department was attempting to fix the issue, but the problem was made worse by Monday's snowstorm. The ice is now buried under a thick layer of snow, which has to be cleared so the hole can be fixed. The ice must be melted a bit, covered in water, and allowed to freeze again. The rink is temporarily closed until the fix can be made. It only reopened about two weeks ago.
