It may not be ready yet, due to mild temps, but Marine City is telling local residents to “stay tuned.” A public ice rink has been installed at Nautical Mile Park on S. Water St. and is expected to be ready to use within the month. According to a recent Facebook post, as soon as the ice is safe, an open to the public date will be announced.
The ice rink has been a long time coming for Marine City. Since at least 2016, the Marine City Commission has considered ice rinks throughout the city, but ran into roadblocks brining the visions to reality. In the past, concerns about the cost and specifications of the rink prevented some members of the commission from voting to approve the purchase.
The current rink is already set up and just waiting for winter weather to make its arrival.
