With the exception of Shawnee Park, Woodbury’s outdoor skating rinks and warming houses are open for the season.
Shawnee Park is expected to open Friday, according to a note from the city’s InTouch system. The city will continue to flood the rinks in an effort to achieve “optimal and safe ice conditions.”
The rinks are open from the end of December through the end of February, depending on weather. There are five warming houses in operation at outdoor skating rinks:
- Colby Lake Park
- Evergreen West Park
- Kargel Park
- Ojibway Park
- Shawnee Park
The city maintains unsupervised skating rinks at Pioneer Park and the Tamarack Nature Preserve.
