Outdoor Skating Rinks

outdoorskatingrink
All outdoor skating rinks, including the refrigerated outdoor ice rink at HSC, and warming houses are closed for the season.

The City of Woodbury Parks and Recreation Department operates four warming houses at selected outdoor skating rinks throughout the winter season. They will be open the end of December through the end of February, weather permitting. If weather permits, we will open earlier.

The outdoor skating rinks will close during extreme weather. For the latest warming house information, call the City of Woodbury weather line at (651) 714-3569.

For other opportunities to ice skate indoors, visit the HealthEast Sports Center page for open skate times and fees.

Note: It is illegal to drive or park on park paths without proper authorization.
