General Outdoor Rink Guidelines

  • Patrons skate at their own risk and within their comfort zone. When the rink is busy, consider skating at another location or at a different time.
  • Use of the outdoor skating rinks is self-monitored. Please be mindful of your time on the rinks so everyone can enjoy skating.
  • Organized practices and games are not currently allowed. Future use of this nature requires a facility use permit issued by the city.
  • Portable bathrooms are available.

The outdoor skating rinks will close during extreme weather. Note: it is illegal to drive or park on park paths without proper authorization.
