ICE RINK AT MILLENNIUM PARK
(280 Romence Road)
The large outdoor refrigerated rink features skate rentals, skate sharpening, snack concessions, restrooms, lockers and an excellent skating surface!
In an abundance of caution for the safety and well-being of city staff and patrons, the Millennium Park Ice Rink will remain closed while COVID-19 numbers remain steady in the region. We understand and recognize the desire to open the ice rink and will continue to monitor the virus spread. We will re-evaluate the closure as conditions change. Thank you for your patience as we work through the pandemic together.
