Ice Skating at the Wick Recreation Area Now Open

(Youngstown, OH) Mill Creek MetroParks (MCMP) staff determined today that the ice skating rink at Wick Recreation Area is now ready for skating. The rink that was installed over the existing sand volleyball courts is not supported by a refrigeration system making it weather dependent for operation. Due to the mild winter conditions this year, this is the first opportunity residents will have to use the outdoor skating facility.
The Wick Recreation Area is the MetroParks’ outdoor family adventure destination and this winter will be no exception as offerings to the public are increased as a result of sound planning and cost effective implementation. Besides ice skating, there will be sled riding, a fire pit and an upgraded concession stand with more options for food and beverage.

Interested skaters will need to bring their own skates and be reminded to enjoy the facility as outlined by the posted rules and regulations. There is no charge for ice skating or sled riding. For additional details on hours of operation please visit
