Ice Skating

19 designated rinks and lagoons at 13 locations throughout the park system.  

  • FREE-TO-USE All designated rinks and lagoons are free to use. No reservation is required! 
  • CHECK THE STATUS Is the rink open? See the status below.
    • DO NOT skate, walk, or otherwise go on a rink or lagoon until it is declared open. Doing so is not safe and slows the opening process by damaging the ice.
    • While ice is never 100% safe, staff monitors the ice depth to be at least 5" to safely support humans and grooming equipment.
  • SKATE RENTALS AVAILABLE Elver, Tenney and Vilas, Wednesday - Sunday (when the rink is listed as open)
    • No rentals on Mondays and Tuesdays. No warming shelters or concessions. 
  • FREE LOANER SKATES Borrow a pair of ice skates to use while at the rink! Limited quantities are available at Olbrich, Rennebohm, Warner and Westmorland.
  • ATTEND a FREE ice skating event. 
  • LEARN MORE about winter recreation in Madison Parks.
