Winter Park Use

The City of Fridley provides lots of opportunities for winter recreation!  We have 10 general skating rinks and 5 hockey rinks throughout the city.  All outdoor ice skating rinks are open for use.  Please respect social distancing while using the ice rinks.  If you have any further questions please call 763-572-3570.

The Commons Park Warming House will be open this season! We anticipate the warming house to open at the end of December 2021 as ice/snow permit. Commons Warming House Hours will be 4pm-8pm on weekdays, and 1pm-8pm on weekends, holidays, and school-out days. The warming house will be closed if unsafe ice conditions or extreme cold temperatures are present.

The City of Fridley attempts to have safe, skateable ice available in mid-December; however, it requires 7 - 10 consecutive days of temperatures below 32 degrees while putting the water down to get a safe 3-4" layer of ice. Please remember that warm conditions, freezing rain and even snow can slow down this process, but our goal is to get those rinks ready as soon as possible. 

Cold Weather Guidelines

As a guideline for outdoor winter activities, we suggest cancelling your activities if the temperature is below -10 degrees Fahrenheit or there is a wind chill of -25 degrees Fahrenheit .
