City Skate is an outdoor rink located on the Civic Center Plaza between Hemmens and City Hall. The refrigerated skating system will allow for a longer skating season than a naturally frozen rink. Warming shelter hours will be available at City Skate. During the warming shelter hours, skate rental is available in exchange for shoes, ID and $4. Please note that no hockey playing is allowed at City Skate. This includes skating with a hockey stick.
