The warm weather brought out a group of first-timers to the newly created ice skating rink at Crosier Park Wednesday afternoon.
Nestled into the neighborhood at 13th Street and Pine Avenue, the 6-inch-deep ice is ready and waiting to be cut through with skates, or even the occasional pair of cowboy boots.
"He's skating in cowboy boots, that's the way to do it," said Angela Kolbet of son Nathan Kolbet, 3, who proved ice skates weren't necessary.
Kolbet and her son were accompanied by a van full of kids ready to try skating for the first time.
Kolbet drove by the skate park early Wednesday, then went to Goodwill to buy a pair of skates so she could bring her 13-year-old daughter, Amber Lemons, after school.
