The Hickory Park Hockey and Skating Rink project poised for substantial completion in December is taking shape.
Last Wednesday, Oct. 16, crews from Mohs Contracting worked to set the footings for the skating rink. Concrete for the hockey rink was poured last week.
The project, which will involve removing the skating rinks from Park Street, will also include a building to house the city’s Zamboni, a warming house and restrooms.
At the Belle Plaine City Council meeting on Monday night, Oct. 21, the council approved two separate bids for the lighting and boards for the hockey rink.
Lighting, supplied by Mohs Contracting, will cost around $51,000.
The boards for the rink, which involve exposed wood and galvanized fencing, will cost just under $65,000 and will be supplied by Becker Arena Products.
The City of Belle Plaine on Wednesday, Oct. 16, also announced that the dog park at Hickory Park has been reopened after being closed for improvements.
