City puts an end to artificial ice rink after high costs, declining popularity


In pairs and on their own, skaters slide around the Library Lawn Skate Rink, next to the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vermont St., on Saturday, Dec. 26. The rink features a simulated-ice surface and rents skates.

The synthetic ice rink purchased by the city three years ago will not be coming out of storage this year.
