After nearly 20 years of technical glitches, construction delays and frequent closures, the rebuilt ice rink at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis is set to open Nov. 29. The state's Board of Public Works awarded $1.35 million last fall from the state's Project Open Space program, with the county contributing the rest of the $2 million reconstruction costs that will restore the original design of the 16,000-square-foot rink. The centerpiece of the 350-acre park will be used for skating in the winter and as a decorative reflecting pond in warm-weather months, county officials said.
