From reports

The Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center joined the City of Columbia City and the Columbia City Parks Department in celebrating the opening of the Eagles Ice Rink at the Russel and Evelyn Fahl Aquatics Center in Columbia City on Friday afternoon.
Open for the remainder of the winter season, the rink features synthetic ice, enabling users to enjoy the facility regardless of outdoor temperatures. The rink will be open Thursdays from 5 to 9 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays from 12 to 6 p.m. A festive atmosphere at the rink includes a concession stand and overhead music.
"We are excited at the way the rink not only offers residents and families an affordable outdoor activity to enjoy during winter months, but it also expands the usefulness of the aquatics center facility well beyond the months the pool is open," said Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center executive director Jennifer Romano. "Additionally, this new feature in our community has the potential to draw people from outside of the county and while they're here, they'll be spending time and infusing additional dollars into our community.
Admission is $2 per person and skate rental is $1. Visitors are welcome to bring along their own skates as well.
The Eagles Ice Rink is located just south of Columbia City High School on North Whitley Street.
