ONE MISSION: BUILDING Community on Ice.
The Livingston Ice Skating (LISA), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was established in 2009. The first ice rink was built at Water Works Parks and successfully operated for 2 years before it was met with challenges from the surrounding neighborhood. Several years later, a new location behind the Civic Center was found. Unfortunately, the warming winter temperatures and Livingston wind made it clear to all that the only solution for a viable ice rink in town was a covered, refrigerated surface.
In 2021, another dedicated group of ice enthusiasts approached Park County about using the Steer Barn at the Fairgrounds to house a rink. Park County purchased a set of rink boards to get the rink up and running! The current ice rink in the Steer Barn has been operational for the past two winter seasons and seen many happy skaters. We have a roof over our head and thanks to our community's support, we now have refrigeration, also known as a chiller, to keep our ice rink frozen all winter long!
We are still accepting donations to keep ice skating free for all and to improve programming for the rink.
