Some Madison Parks Ice Rinks Open Today!

January 4, 2012

The winter weather has cooperated for a few days. Some Madison Parks ice rinks will be open today. Not all areas or rinks are open and safe for ice skating! None of the Hockey rinks are open yet because the conditions have not provided the opportunity for staff to put up the hockey boards. Also, very notably - Vilas Park Lagoon is NOT yet open. There are areas that still have open water. The water in the lagoon can reach over 5 feet deep. For your safety, please stay off the Vilas Park lagoon.

Please note that the weather will be warming up again in the next few days. The rink closings/openings will change daily with the weather conditions. Be sure to check the website for daily changes.
