Eagle Scout Project Builds Outdoor Ice Rink at Cooney State Park

(Billings, MT) – Montana State Parks ( announced that a group of Boy Scouts have constructed an outdoor ice rink at Cooney State Park, 40 minutes south of Billings, MT.

Located in the parking lot of the Marshall Cove boat ramp area, the 30' x 60' ice rink is the Eagle Scout project of Aidan Harrington. Harrington, a member of Troop 7, Black Otter District, Montana Council, designed the rink and also coordinated the donation of all the construction materials. Construction was completed by Harrington and his troop. Troop 7 is lead by Mark Sevier.  

Harrington has been working on the plan for the rink with Cooney State Park Manager Jennifer Alexander since last summer. “I think it’s great to have the Boy Scouts come out and build a skating rink that creates additional winter activity options,” said Alexander. “It has been a great partnership and I look forward to future projects with them.” 

Where:  Cooney State Park – Marshall Cove, 86 Lake Shore Road, Roberts MT 59070
