A rally was held Saturday in a last attempt to get San Mateo city leaders to keep an ice rink open.

The Ice Center of San Mateo is preparing to close at the end of this month when its lease at the Bridgepointe Shopping Center runs out.

The shopping center owner wants to replace it with new retail stores.

But community groups say the ice rink is part of the shopping center's master plan.

On May 6th the council heard from hockey players, figure skaters, and scout groups asking to block the changes.
