Halloran Skating Rink (3550 W 117th St.) will finally open for the season on Jan. 4, the city of Cleveland announced this week.

The public rink, the only one operated by the city, is free for visitors. Skates are available to rent for $1.

Covid delayed the usual opening date but the city made use of the time to make some hockey-related improvements to the facility for the season.

The Halloran open-air rink first opened on Christmas Eve in 1959 with a ribbon cutting by then-Mayor Anthony Celebrezze. A roof was added in 1975
