TRENTON, N.J. - The Mercer County Ice Skating Rink in Mercer County Park is now open after a brief closure to repair a maintenance problem.

The Ice Skating Rink is open for normal operating hours. General skating hours are:  Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Friday nights, 8:30 to 10:30 p.m.; Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m., 5 to 7 p.m., and 8 to 10 p.m.; and Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m.

Seniors-only skating for those 62 years and older is Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

A damaged line discovered six days ago was preventing the ice at the rink from fully freezing. The repairs are now complete.
