ICE RINKS and LAGOONS
Safety is our number one priority. Parks staff are routinely checking ice depths at all ice rinks and lagoon locations. Once opened, Elver, Tenney, and Vilas parks offer a staffed warming shelter with ice skate rentals and concessions. During the winter season, the status of an ice rink or frozen lagoon can change from day-to-day -- before you step out, be sure to check below the status of your favorite rink. Select the individual location below for additional amenities and open hours. 

IF AN ICE RINK IS LISTED AS CLOSED, DO NOT SKATE!

  • Ice strength is determined by a number of factors, such as appearance, age, thickness, temperature, body of water, and snow cover.
  • Ice rinks are opened once there is a consistent ice depth of 4 inches or greater.
  • In order to prevent extended closures due to damaged ice, rinks will also close if snow or meltwater are visible on the surface.
  • After a snowfall, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE SNOW FROM RINKS. Parks staff will perform this task after priority service areas (roads, bus stops, bike trails, etc.). 

HOCKEY BOARDS  (as conditions allow)
Olbrich, Tenney, Vilas, and Westmorland. 

LOANER SKATES
New this year! Select locations offer ice skates you can try out while at the rink or lagoon. See inside the shelter at Olbrich, Rennehohm, Warner, and Westmorland. Guests are asked to always return the skates to the shelter and follow instructions as provided onsite.
