Ice Skating

We have one outdoor ice skating area that is inspected for safe ice skating conditions, and two man-made ice rinks that are made when conditions are favorable.

Ice skating is available at the parks below when conditions are safe - indicated by a GREEN FLAG. At no time should you skate on a rink with a RED FLAG. Always check the flag upon arrival at the rink before going on the ice.

We will update the status of all of our ice rinks. UPDATES ARE MADE ONLY WHEN ICE CONDITIONS CHANGE.

For rink locations, visit the Parks and Facilities Directory.
