MEDFORD, Ore. – The annual Lithia Park Ice Rink was scheduled to open this morning.
However, unfavorable weather conditions turned the rink into a sink.
Staff tell us that warmer temperatures and rain caused the ice to melt, leaving a big puddle.
They say it isn’t safe for figure skaters, hockey players or anyone looking to enjoy their time on the ice just yet.
Staff made a re-evaluation at 5 p.m. hoping conditions would improve but decided to close the rink until tomorrow morning.
