At City Forest we are always working to make sure our attractions are up and running but weather isn't always cooperative. Please use our Activity Update App (called Rainout Line) at 989-399-0506 or online to check the conditions of your favorite attractions such as tobogganing and ice skating.
City Forest Ice Skating Rink
City Forest has one large lighted ice rink located directly in front of the chalet. The rink is lighted daily from 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. and skates can be rented at the chalet (during hours of operation). There is no hockey allowed on this sheet of ice.
Emerson Park Ice Hockey Rink
Emerson Park has an outdoor regulation size hockey rink with a smooth concrete surface that is flooded during winter months and can be used by all skaters free of charge. Bring your own hockey gear; nets are provided. The rink is available on a first-come first serve basis and is non-reservable. The rink is open year-round during normal park hours. The rink is operated on a self-serve light timer, which is operated by the user, for extended night use. Detailed instructions on how to use the light-timing system can be found on-site.
