It may have been mid-60s outside on Monday, but The Railyard in the West Haymarket is almost in full winter mode.

Workers have started putting together the 45-by-95 foot ice skating rink that will take over the Railyard during the winter.

Even during those mild winter days, Railyard event manager Stephanie Warner says a special cooling gel runs through the pipes below the ice to keep it frozen.

"There really isn't a whole lot for kids and families to do during the winter months, you're kind of stuck inside.  So this is a great chance to get out and burn off some energy," Warner said.

The rink is set to open on Saturday.

Skating is free, but ice skate rentals are $6.00 for children and $9.00 for adults.
