Lancaster Ice Rink Closure - REPAIR UPDATE

A new motor has been procured for compressor #2.  BK Rinks is currently completing motor set-up, with installation scheduled for Monday (July 6th).  With the very high outdoor temperatures experienced last week, compressor #1 alone was unable to prevent the ice from melting.  Once compressor #2 is operating, LIR staff will bring the pad down to operating temperature and begin rebuilding the ice.

The following programs have been canceled or postponed up to Sunday, July 12th:

  • Freestyle Ice, Public Skate, all Open Hockey - CANCELED
  • Summer Skills, Body-checking Clinic, Learn-to-Play Hockey and PHL Adult Hockey - POSTPONED (to be rescheduled)

Individual program customers will receive a follow-up email.  We will continue to provide timely updates as we work towards re-opening the rink.

Lancaster Ice Rink Closure - Compressor Repair

This morning (June 27th) the Lanacaster Ice Rink experienced a motor failure in compressor #2.  BK Rinks has assessed the situation and will begin the repair process on Monday (June 29th).  Due to high outdoor temperatures at this time of year, the rink is unable to operate normally without both compressors working.  Therefore, LIR will remained closed until repairs are effected.

The following programs have been canceled or postponed up to Sunday, July 5th:

  • Freestyle Ice, Public Skate, all Open Hockey - CANCELED
  • Summer Skills, PHL Adult Hockey - POSTPONED (to be rescheduled)

Individual program customers will receive a follow-up email.  It is our intention to keep the LIR community fully informed on the progress of nursing our (very) old ice plant back to health.  We are all frustrated with the timing of this mechanical failure, coming as it has on the heels of the COVID-19 closure.  We ask for everyone's patience and understanding as we work the problem.
