 Seward Parks & Rec is seeking donations of new or used ice skates to our small and depleted inventory. The public can reserve a pair of ice skates for a week at a time. Please drop off your donation to the Sports & Rec team at the AVTEC Gym, 519 4th Avenue.

Second Lake, off Vista, ice skating is good. In snowy, rainy or warmer temperatures, please keep pets and people off Second Lake ice until it can be cleared and re-maintained. Footprints on the ice cause bumps which are hard to skate over and very difficult to repair.
