The city has three staffed warming houses and four 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.
