Braeburn Park ice rink getting ready to open this season

RAPID CITY, S.D. — Once it freezes, hockey enthusiasts will have another location for pick-up games in Rapid City.

Crews with Parks and Rec have started filling the rink at Braeburn Park. The ice rink was a popular location in the 70’s and 80’s for pickup games before falling into disrepair and eventually being abandoned.

But last January, the city infused new life into the old rink, replacing and painting the old dasher-boards and installing lights.

This is the second season the city has flooded a rink. It also has skating at Wilson Park.
