ELVER HOCKEY RINK 2019 UPDATE: Madison Parks regrets to announce that there will be no hockey facilities available at Elver Park this winter.  Due to the warm weather and rain events in January, the banks of the skating area are not uniformly frozen and are not holding water.  Consequently, we are not able to maintain the customary ice sheet which should normally encompass the hockey rink and the general skating area. We welcome skating on the general rink at Elver, but no hockey goals will be available. 

*Hours may vary if ice conditions or the weather are determined to be unsafe. The website is updated as soon as information from the field is available.
