Fun Prairie "Rink Rangers" Adopt an Ice Rink Volunteer Program

Calling all volunteers! 

SPPRF has invested in two ice rink liner systems for the 2021-2022 skating season.  The liner systems signficantly improve the quality of the ice and the duration of the skating season.  However, the liner system also requires additional maintenance, time, and attention that a traditional flooded rink does not.

SPPRF is committed to providing high quality ice rink facilities, but due to the additional manual labor required, combined with finite staffing resources, a community-supported volunteer program is critical for the success and future expansion of these facilities.

The "Rink Rangers" Adopt-a-Rink Volunteer Program is a family-friendly volunteer opportunity that relies on community members to assist the Parks, Recreation & Forestry Department with basic ice rink maintenance such as snow removal, flooding/resurfacing (trained volunteers only), general site cleanup, and other maintenance needs as identified.

The 2021-2022 season is the first year of this program and will serve as a pilot to determine if additional ice rink liner systems within the park system are feasible in future years.
