The Redmond ice rink will close for the season on March 11th.
Redmond Community Development Director Heather Richards says crews will dismantle the rink and turn it back into a plaza.
Richards says the rink was cost neutral for them - with all of the visitors - it paid for all the operating costs.
She says they have heard a request from some enterprising school kids about an alternative use of the area.
"We have, interestingly, I received a petition from an elementary school students who want us to consider a roller skating rink there for the summertime, so we're looking at that."
Richards says she's seen the ice rink as a community gathering place where people kind of get together and talk about city issues and she would like to see something in place that would continue that activity.
