Mill Creek MetroParks to hold Phantoms Skate/Meet & Greet at Lily Pond

Due to the cold temperatures, Mill Creek MetroParks has been able to provide an outdoor skating experience to visitors at the Lily Pond. Now the Youngstown Phantoms are getting in on the fun.

Mill Creek MetroParks will hold a Youngstown Phantoms Skate/Meet & Greet at the Lily Pond on Monday, February 16 from 4 – 5:30 p.m. as long as the weather permits safe skating conditions. Hockey lovers and skaters of all ages can come out and meet the Phantoms and have some fun with the players. The Lily Pond will be open for supervised skating that day from noon – 6 p.m.

Supervised ice skating this weekend will be today from 3 – 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Skating at the Lily Pond will continue Friday, February 20 from 3 – 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. as long as weather conditions will allow. The skating area will be open; however, the hockey area continues to be closed due to unsafe ice. Benches and a fire pit will be provided for the convenience of those not hitting the ice or those who need to rest or warm up. Interested skaters are asked to please bring skates as no skate rental will be available.
