It only takes a few days of cold weather for people to start asking for outdoor ice rinks.
The village has traditionally built a rink in Burns Field, at Vine and Hickory streets. But the rink has not been built for the past two winters because temperatures did not stay low enough long enough, said Hinsdale Director of Parks and Recreation Gina Hassett.
Hassett will check the weather forecast Dec. 9.
Despite the warm weather midweek, temperatures are expected to fall below freezing this weekend. If that happens, Hassett will see if the long-range forecast shows freezing weather.
“Our goal will be to have ice during the Christmas break,” Hassett said.
Residents who live near Brook Park at Third Street and Columbia Avenue have requested to build an ice rink there for the first time, Hassett said.
