Update March 19, 2019:  All outdoor ice rinks are closed for the season.  Thanks to everyone who participated in this active recreation opportunity!  See you next year.

Regular season open hours of the 400 Block warming house are Monday through Friday from 5pm until 8pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from 10am until 8pm.  The rink has lights for night skating.

Any time the combined air and wind temperature falls to -15 degrees or colder, the rink will close.

Lighted ice rinks with warming houses are located at the 400 Block and Marathon Park. There is also a skating rink at Thom Field, with lights and a warming house.
