My Town GR South: Wintertime attraction returns to Wilcox Park

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—A wintertime attraction in Grand Rapids proved so popular last year, it may return this season.

The Wilcox Park ice rink is expected to welcome its first skaters of the season in January.  Last year, Friends of Grand Rapids Parks, Aquinas College hockey players and community volunteers constructed three outdoor ice rinks at Wilcox, Cherry and Richmond parks to encourage people to visit these public spaces during the normally quiet winter season.

The Eastown Community Association needs volunteers to help maintain the ice rink at Wilcox Park. Ideally, at least a dozen people would help build the rink, and eight people would maintain the ice throughout the season.  If you would like to help, e-mail Lindsey at lindsey@eastown.org.
