Mill Creek MetroParks Dek hockey rink wins award

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Mill Creek MetroParks' Dek Hockey Rink won an award from the Ohio Parks and Recreation Association (OPRA) on Tuesday.

OPRA announced MetroParks' Dek Hockey Rink placed 3rd in the Capital Improvement Projects under $1,000,000 category. Award winners were decided by a group of parks and recreation professionals throughout the state.

The Dek Hockey Rink is a year-round street hockey rink that can be used by players wearing roller skates or normal tennis shoes. The rink features an electronic scoreboard and dasher boards and is free to use. The rink was built in the same area that ice rink used to be years ago.

The project is a team effort between Mill Creek MetroParks, the Youngstown Phantoms, and Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation.

Officials from Mill Creek MetroParks will be presented with the award during a banquet hosted by OPRA in Sandusky, Ohio in February.
