Update 2.28.22: WE HAVE DISCONTINUED MAINTAINENCE ON OUR ICE RINKS FOR THE 2022 SEASON.

Winter Recreation Areas

Take advantage of the great outdoors and the numerous winter recreational opportunities we have to offer right in your backyard!  Spend an afternoon or evening with your family at one of our winter recreation centers throughout the city that include various activities such as sledding, ice skating and cross country skiing.  Winter Recreation Centers are open normal park hours of 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.  Check the below for the locations of all your favorite cold weather activities!  

**Please note that we do not have underground chillers for our ice rinks so we are working directly with Mother Nature for the conditions of our ice.  Make sure to check our Facebook page for updates on conditions.  

Warming Areas

We are excited to provide warming areas at Jones Park & Reid Golf Course.  Please check the Winter Recreation Update to see when the facilities will be open.  We will keep the facilities open as long as the weather allows.  These facilities will contain supervised warming areas with restrooms and concessions.  Masks will be required.
