Host Your Own After Hours Event at Vilas and Tenney Park
We are now offering exclusive after-hours use of two of our premiere ice skating locations and shelters: Vilas Park and Tenney Park. These locations provide the picturesque location for a celebration with their lit frozen lagoons and rinks, cozy shelters, and the peacefulness of a winter night.
The John Wall Family Pavilion in Tenney Park is a great location for your next office party, birthday party or holiday celebration.
This great central location is situated adjacent to the Henry Vilas Zoo. Where else can you ice skate and hear a lion roar?
Your reservation will include:
Friday and Saturday evenings from 9:15-11:00pm during the ice skating season, weather permitting.
The concession stand will be open and available for your guests. Groups may bring in or cater in their own food and drinks. If you will be having alcohol at Tenney Park, you must also purchase an alcohol permit since Tenney is a no alcohol park.
Reservation fee, $110
Unlimited skate rental for your guests, $50
Alcohol permit (Tenney Park), $50
