Ice Skating

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.
Ice Hockey 
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 not 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.
