Being a retired figure skater, I've been following the story on the ice rink opening in Monument Square. One thing that I'm confused about is the fact that there already is an existing rink that has not been used for the last several years. This was located just east of Main Street along the lakefront.
I'm not quite sure why they didn't use that existing rank rather than creating something new. To me it seems like the existing rink would have been the better choice financially.
