BURLINGTON, Vt. — Community organizers in Burlington are raising money to maintain a free skating rink in the city.

MyChamplainValley.com reports the Calahan Park Skating Rink opened earlier this month. Organizers hope they can raise $1,600 to install a plastic liner and purchase other supplies.

Parents say the Calahan Park Skating Rink is a fun, safe place for local children. The rink even offers skating rentals.

Last year, organizers raised $1,000 for the rink.
