While preparing for the opening of the Deep River Ice Skating Plaza
at Deep River Waterpark, Park Department personnel discovered damage
to the sub grade cooling system.
It is believed the damage can be attributed to the severe winter and
subsequent frost heave. Repairs to the cooling system will require the removal and replacement of a portion of the concrete plaza together with related work that cannot be completed in time for skating this winter.
This is incredibly unfortunate and something that could not have been foreseen or prevented. Park Department personnel are as disappointed as the public
will undoubtedly be. The Department hopes to have the Deep River Ice Plaza
repaired and ready for the 2015 ice skating season.
These circumstances mean that in addition to the regular skating season
Snowflake Skate, the Family Friendly New Year’s Eve event,
and the CSRI winter party will also be cancelled.
