Anyone hoping to engage in outdoor iceskating fun in Travis Park this winter may need to brace themselves.

On Thursday, the Rotary Club of San Antonio, the organizers behind last year's popular downtown attraction, officially put the kibosh on the skating rink's planned return in a statement posted on Facebook.



"Due to uncertainty regarding social gatherings and safety, and in light of the preparation needed to plan such an event, the RCSA, working with the ice rink provider, has found it necessary to cancel the Rotary Ice Rink planned for the end of this year," the post reads.
