The outdoor artificial ice rink behind Hasty Memorial Armory in Auburn has been shut down due to leaking problems.

Parks and Recreation Department Superintendent Norris Ingersoll said earlier this week that the rink was closed in mid-February because of a leak in the tubing under the ice. To this date, Ingersoll said, officials have been unable to locate the leak.

“We thought the best thing was to close it down and wait until spring,” he said.

Original plans called for the rink to be open from Thanksgiving to late winter.
