Chanhassen Skating Rinks and Warming Houses Closed until Further Notice

The City of Chanhassen Parks and Recreation Department would like to inform the community
that all skating rinks and warming houses will be closed today January 19, 2017 until furthernotice.
Due to the unusually warm temperatures and forecasted rain, the ice rinks are deteriorating
and presently not suitable to skate on. We ask that people refrain from using the rinks until
further notice.

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.
