Ice Skating Rinks

Rinks are Now CLOSED for the Season


The recent warm weather has taken a toll on our outdoor ice rinks, and with temperatures forecasted to be above freezing for quite some time, the Park and Recreation Department has made the decision to close the rinks for the season.

Enjoy the nice weather and see you next year!

Rink Flooding Policy


Outdoor skating rinks are flooded and open to the public from approximately December 13 through March 1 (weather permitting). In recent years, weather has not always cooperated when it comes to flooding skating rinks. As a result, the following is the City of Chanhassen's policy to determine calendar dates of when it is and isn't appropriate to flood rinks:

If skating rinks can be opened on January 10 or before, all rinks will be flooded. The season will be cancelled if rinks are not opened by January 11.
