Sharpen your skates! Ice rinks in Cummings, Freeway, Hazelnut, and Perry parks will be officially open for use, with rink attendants on duty, starting Saturday, January 2.
Warming houses will be closed to the public due to COVID-19 safety regulations.
Rink flooding will continue as needed. Rinks will be closed if the temperature is -20 degrees Fahrenheit, and/or the wind chill is -20 degrees Fahrenheit. Call the weather line at 651-792-7841 to receive an update on any possible closures. Rinks were late to open this year due to unseasonably warm weather.

- Hazelnut Park—3301 New Brighton Road
- Perry Park (hockey rink ONLY)—3700 New Brighton Road
