Outdoor skating rinks and warming houses at Colby Lake, Kargel and Evergreen West parks are now open.
Woodbury crews had tried to flood the city's outdoor ice rinks earlier this season, but the weather wasn’t cooperating. Mother Nature has finally decided to oblige. The city announced Friday that outdoor skating rinks and warming houses at Colby Lake, Kargel and Evergreen West parks will open for the season today, Jan. 14. However, the rinks and warming houses at Shawnee and Ojibway parks will remain closed due to poor ice conditions. Check out the city's website for details, including operating hours.
