LEHI, Utah — Lehi City is starting a new winter tradition by converting a baseball field into a temporary ice rink.
The new ice rink opened this past weekend at Lehi’s Sports Complex located at 2000 W. and 700 S.
Lehi City Recreation Program Coordinator Jessica West told KSL NewsRadio the idea for the rink came about in March 2023. The city enlisted the help of Ice America to build and provide the rink rental skates.
She said the city has big plans for the ice rink.
“We got music, we’re selling hot chocolate, donuts (and) bottled water,” West said. “We are also doing some of our special events here throughout the 60 days that we are open.”
Those 60 days end on Jan. 26. After that, Lehi City plans to convert the ice rink back into a baseball field and return everything back to the way it was, according to West.
The rink is offering skating lessons as an option with admission which is seven dollars. Those wishing to take lessons may register at the Lehi Ice Rink website. Skaters may bring their own ice skates or rent them for five dollars.
The ice rink’s general hours during the week are 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on weekends. The rink is closed on Sundays.
