LAKEFRONT PARK RINKS and WARMING HOUSE
The warming house (5000 Kop Parkway) and ice rinks are open at Lakefront Park whenever weather conditions allow for making ice. Check our warming house hotline at (952) 447-9825 for most current updates. Equipment rental is not available at this facility, please provide your equipment.
MAKING ICE TAKES MORE THAN COLD WEATHER
Making an outdoor ice rink is weather dependent. Staff begins the process in early winter by insulating and sealing the drains in the two paved hockey rinks at Lakefront Park. When the temperatures are below freezing, and the extended forecast looks like they will remain that way, staff will begin flooding the rinks with layers of water utilizing a water tanker truck. Most of the flooding occurs in the overnight hours when it is the coldest and there is no competition from the sun. It can take one or two weeks to make the six to eight inches of ice needed to open the rinks for skaters. The pleasure rink at Lakefront Park will usually take a week longer to obtain skateable ice as it is built on grass. Snow events will slow this process down when ice making staff is needed for snow plowing operations. For up to date ice rink conditions, please call the weather hotline at 952-447-9825.
