Mill Creek Lily Pond open again for skating

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Mill Creek MetroParks has reopened the Lily Pond to ice skaters.

Park officials tell 21 News that cold temperatures over the past few days has made ice at the pond safe once again for skating.

The pond was opened to skaters last Saturday for the first time in 20 years, but closed on Sunday after higher temperatures caused the ice to thaw.

Supervised ice skating hours through February 23 are as follows:

  • Fridays - 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Saturdays & Sundays - 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Skating will continue as long as conditions safely allow.

Benches and a fire pit will be provided for the convenience of those not skating or those who need to rest or warm up.  No skate rental is available.

For questions and more information about ice skating on the Lily Pond, call Mill Creek MetroParks at 330-702-3000 or visit the park website.
