General Outdoor Rink Guidelines

  • Skaters must maintain a 6-foot distance from other non-household members to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
  • Do not visit public places if you are sick or have COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Patrons skate at their own risk and within their comfort zone. When the rink is busy, consider skating at another location or at a different time.
  • Use of the outdoor skating rinks is self-monitored. Please be mindful of your time on the rinks so everyone can enjoy skating.
  • Organized practices and games are not currently allowed. When state guidelines reopen organized sports, these practices and games will require a facility-use permit issued by the city.
  • Portable bathrooms are available.
