IDAHO FALLS, Idaho -

The ice rink at Tautphaus Park in Idaho Falls is open for the season.

The rink is open for public skating every day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you don't have your own skates, you can rent them for $3.

The city is expanding the classes and open public skating.

"We're really excited," said Parks and Recreation Director Greg Weitzel. "This year we're doing a public skate on Friday nights from 7 to 9. It's a great date night. It's a great thing for families to come out. ..."

Hockey lessons and private figure skating lessons will be offered on the ice as well. You can find the schedule at bit.ly/Hxdz5o.
