First open-air ice rink in metro area welcomes skaters

HILLSBORO, OR (KPTV) -

The metro area’s only open-air ice skating rink opened at 10 a.m. Friday in Hillsboro. 

The ice rink is part of the Winter Village at Orenco Station Plaza.

Cooling and power structures are built right on the ground to keep the ice frozen.

Sessions begin every two hours and last 90 minutes, and admission is $12.

Hillsboro Parks and Rec is hoping this new tradition is a hit.

"I think that's what this is all about bringing community together and having a really good time and we expect a lot of that over the holiday," an employee said.

The Winter Village will be open, with the exception of Christmas Day, until Jan. 3.
