Come out and see why Minnesota winters are "snow" much fun!!


Ice Skating: The ice rink is located at Portage Park. The warming house is open and staffed on weekdays from 3:30-9:00 and on weekends or holidays 1:00-9:00. Skaters are welcome to use the rink on your own when the warming house is closed, but the ice may not be free of snow.
