LANSING, Mich. — The City of Lansing and the Community Foundation are teaming up to build a 3,300 square foot synthetic ice skating rink on City Hall Plaza.

The rink will have colorful lights, benches, and heaters.

The project will cost roughly $100,000.

Mayor Andy Schor says he hopes the rink will provide an outdoor activity Lansing residents can enjoy during the pandemic. Ingham County health officer Linda Vail says the rink should be safe as long as people adhere to COVID-19 precautions and avoid overcrowding.

Installation will start early February and the city hopes to open the rink by the middle of the month.
