Unfortunately, all outdoor rinks and warming houses are officially CLOSED for the season.
Although we are happy for an early spring, the warm weather has made the ice unsuitable for skating and the extended forecast is not ideal for flooding and maintaining outdoor rinks. Our crews need temps consistently below zero for 5-7+ days in order to create skateable, and safe, ice for everyone.
We apologize for a shortened outdoor skating season and hope for better conditions next year.
Thank you for your understanding.
