Update 2.26.21 – We are OPENING the ice rinks as they are soft but still have some skatable areas. The warm weather will most likely bring the season to an end in the next few days, so go out and enjoy what is left! Friday evening (2/26) will be the last day the Jones Warming Area will be open for the season. The trails at Reid and Memorial Park are in fair condition.

Winter Recreation Centers

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 grid below for the locations of all your favorite cold weather activities!
