UPDATE MARCH 1: Warming houses are closed. Park Maintenance plans to continue maintaining rinks as long as weather permits. However, this week's warm temperatures will make the ice unusable.
The city has five warming houses and six outdoor rink locations throughout the city. From mid-December to late February (weather permitting), warming houses are open, rinks are lit and an attendant is on duty. Skate rentals are not available at the outdoor rinks. The Park Maintenance Division maintains the rinks, flooding and sweeping as needed throughout the skating season.
