REXBURG, Idaho (KIFI) - After a successful inaugural season, the Teton Lakes Golf course has once again been converted into a winter activity paradise. The park is entirely provided by the city of Rexburg for people in the region to use.

Among the park amenities is a sledding hill and groomed cross country skiing trails that are free for use. They also have a place for people to rent skis if they need those as well. The park will also feature an outdoor ice skating rink as well. The rink will be open from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. daily. You can find the winter park at 722 N 12th W Rexburg Idaho.

Despite Monday's cold weather ,people were already enjoying the amenities the park had to offer.

"I'm staying with some friends in Sugar City. And so they were coming out today and I decided to come with them," Sarah Dunkle said.

"It's Christmas time, so we came to do cross-country skiing," Ashley Bingham said.

"It's a lot of fun. I enjoyed going around the trails for sure," Gabe Barnhill said.

"I'm a teacher, so I'm inside for, 8, 9 hours a day. So it's the first day of winter break, and it's time to get out. And so it's cold, but it's nice to be out and get some fresh air," Hailey Hibbard said. Hibbard came to the Winter Park with her family and took her young daughter sledding for the first time.

She says watching her daughter's enjoyment of the activity made the cold durable.

"I haven't gone sledding for years. And so just seeing her excitement and even when she fell, she was so excited to fall just to get in the snow. And it's really great to relive those childhood memories I had."

Others came out to the park with a lot of their friends.

"Definitely with the people i came with, just spending time with them," Bingham said.

"It's a lot of fun as long as you don't fall on your face all the time," Dunkle said.

Many of those who came out Monday said the park is something they hope to come back to during the winter season.
