Weather Updates

Weather updates are posted as winter amenities are open or closed due to temperature, snow pack, etc. 

January 29, 2024: Due to the lack of snow and warm temperatures, all City ice skating and hockey rinks are closed until further notice. This includes the Commons Park Warming House. We are not currently renting snowshoes or kicksleds at Springbrook Nature Center and there is no snow to maintain cross country skiing and multi-use trails.

Winter Park Amenities

Ice Skating Rinks

The City of Fridley maintains five skating rinks and six hockey rinks in Fridley!  Please note, we need about ten consecutive days of freezing temperatures to create safe and usable ice. Warm weather, freezing rain, and even snow can slow the process down, but we do our best to get the rinks ready as soon as possible. 

General Rinks

General skating rinks are general use, smaller in size, and don't have hockey rink boards. 

Hockey Rinks

Hockey rinks are regulation size and include hockey rink boards. 


Winter Gear Rental

Commons Warming House

Weather and ice conditions permitting, the warming house will be open the following hours: Friday, 3:30-7 p.m., Saturday/Sunday 1-6 p.m. (closed holidays). 

Rink lights remain on until 9 p.m. 

Free Skate Rental

When the warming house is open, a variety of types and sizes of ice/hockey skates are available for the public to use for FREE!
