Officials on Friday announced that the Unified Trust Company Ice Rink in Triangle Park would open Saturday — a day later than initially planned.

Organizers issued a news release early Friday, saying the opening had to be delayed because of a problem with the ice chiller. The rink at Triangle Park, West Main Street and South Broadway, is scheduled to open at 10 a.m. Saturday.

The skate-rental fee is $10. Scheduled hours of operation are 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday. When Fayette County Schools are not in session, the rink will be open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday.
