Outdoor Ice Rinks:
The Parks Division is happy to announce that both the regular skating area and the hockey rink are now open at Tenney. The small rink and hockey rink at Vilas Park have been reopened but NOT THE large lagoon. Crews continue to work on the lagoon to create safe ice. The skating rink at Elver is open but the ice is rough.
Skate rentals are also available. Costs for the first hour for adults is $6.00 and each additional hour is $2.00. Rental for children 14 and under for the first hour is $3.00 and for each additional hour is $1.00.
The warming shelters will be open from 2:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. or close sooner if the last patrons leave.
The trails at Elver and Odana are open for skiing. The crew is working on setting tracks at Monona.
Thank you for continuing to bear with us as we continue to overcome the many obstacles that Nature has given us this winter season.
