Ice Skating

Ice Skating

19 designated rinks and lagoons at 13 locations throughout the park system.  

  • FREE-TO-USE: All designated rinks and lagoons are free to use. No reservation required! 
  • SKATE RENTALS AVAILABLE (first-come, first-served): Elver, Tenney and Vilas
  • No rentals on Mondays and Tuesdays. 
  • CHECK THE STATUS: Is the rink open? See the status below.
    • DO NOT skate, walk, or otherwise go on a rink or lagoon until it is declared open. Doing so is not safe and slows the opening process by damaging the ice.
    • While ice is never 100% safe, staff monitors the ice depth to be at least 5" to safely support humans and grooming equipment.
  • LEARN MORE about winter recreation in Madison Parks:
