Madison Parks invites you to join the Adopt Ice Partnership initiative. The idea of Adopt Ice Partnership combines city resources with volunteer power to provide the community with quality ice for outdoor hockey and skating.
The Parks Division has partnered with neighbors and interested individuals to assist in the maintenance of the ice rinks. After major snow storms, parks staffs' first priority is safety and plowing of roads, bike trails, sidewalks and parking lots. After those priorities are addressed, then staff can address ice rink maintenance. With the Adopt Ice Partnership, citizens pitched in after a snow storm to remove the snow from the ice rinks. This allowed parks staff to get the rinks in prime condition for skating much more quickly.
If you are interested in joining an existing Adopt Ice Partnership or starting an Adopt Ice group on an existing ice rink, please plan to attend an informational Adopt Ice Partnership Meeting.
