While winter officially begins December 21, please remember that Mother Nature decides when these outdoor winter sports can start, not the Parks Division! For the equipment to safely prepare the rinks for skating, staff needs two to four weeks of below-freezing temperatures. To keep updated on the outdoor ice skating conditions, subscribe to email updates on My Account.
Madison Parks offers group ice skating lessons for beginners of all ages at our premier outdoor skating rinks at Elver and Tenney parks.
Ice Skate Rentals and concessions are available at Elver, Tenney and Vilas Parks.
Dec. 10, 2013 - Ice Skating rinks are dangerously thin and they are not yet open. Some areas still have open water. Stay safe and stay off the ice. Madison Parks will open the ice rinks as soon as conditions are safe. Ice skating lesson registration is now open. Register now for these popular outdoor lessons!
