The rink opened for the season.
Monarch Park Rink was listed as open on Boxing Day, on the city's website.
But although the rink is unlocked, the change room is not. Nor are there any benches outside. There's a family changing out of their skates, sitting on the cold ground in front of the locked change room door. There is one skater on the ice with a hockey stick, one woman just leaving, and the family are leaving too. A sign on the door says the rink is closed on Boxing Day.
