It might have been one of the most challenging winters, with regard to the consistently low temperatures and snowfall, but a few months from now, absence could make the heart grow fonder.With that possibility, Headwaters Park's ice rink, heading into the last weekend of operation for the season, is offering a special deal for visitors Saturday and Sunday: Buying one admission at regular price means a second admission is free, for both children and adults. Skating is open 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday and noon-8 p.m. Sunday.

According to Geoff Paddock, executive director of Headwaters Park, somewhere between 19,000 and 20,000 skaters are expected to have visited the rink this season, its 11th, with attendance likely being suppressed because of weather conditions over the course of winter.

Paddock said in an email that the rink's best season, 2011-12, had more than 26,000 skaters.

Parking is free, and the concession stand will be open. Skate rental is $2, or visitors can bring their own skates.

Paddock also said the 12th season of skating will begin in November, with the date to be determined.
