Taking a spin on the ice
The lack of snow hasn’t helped Echo Bluff Park’s cross country skiing any, but the ice rink is doing well. The park is open for skating on Fridays from 4 to 8 p.m., on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and by appointment. The fire pit is lit, and skaters can come to warm themselves and enjoy cocoa and marshmallows! There is a $5 skating fee and $3 skate rental. Other winter activities available include the expanded paintball course and the nine-hole disc golf course. For more information, call 815-252-3894 or 815-663-2085.
