Ice Rinks & Sled Hills

2019-20 Condition Report

The Park District makes ice between December 15 and February 15- weather permitting. The Park District does not utilize refrigerant coils for establishing ice rinks. Making ice requires a prolonged period of time when both the daytime and evening temperatures remain below 22° with several inches of frost in the ground.

This page will be updated on a regular basis during the season when conditions are favorable for ice making.  To prevent damage to the ice surface, please refrain from entering ice rink areas when they are posted as closed .    

Thank you.

Updated: 02/14/20 @ 9:30 AM

Parks staff has worked through the night to establish ice at select locations where ground conditions were most favorable for quick ice establishment.  With less than 24 hours before temperatures begin to rebound back above freezing, 3 rinks listed below will be open for skating at 1:00 pm today.  Warm sunshine this afternoon will deteriorate the surface quickly, and safety cones have been placed in areas where ice is particularly thin or rough.  Please avoid these areas.

Updates will be provided as conditions change.

Thank you
