Fort Wayne, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – A winter favorite is now open in downtown Fort Wayne.

The Headwaters Park outdoor skating rink is celebrating season number ten!

More than 189,000 people have used the rink since it opened in 2003.

It's the only outdoor skating rink within a 75-mile radius. So people come from all over Indiana, not to mention, Ohio and Michigan to have some fun.

Prices are still $3 for children 13 and under and $5 for children 14 and over and adults. There is a $2 charge to rent skates, or patrons can bring their own skates.

Every Wednesday, between November 28 and February 27, will be a free skate day for children 13 and under, thanks to grants from the Lupke and Auer Foundations.

Free parking is available in the Headwaters Park lot, with access from Clinton and Barr Streets. Season skating passes, single skating passes, and ice skating lesson information is available by calling Geoff Paddock at 425-5745.
