In the winter we create and maintain ice skating rinks. There is no charge for use of these rinks. Weather permitting, the rinks will be open from mid-January to early March. 

Rink Locations

  • 14th and Pine Street (Thirlby Field)  
  • State Street between Railroad and Hope (F&M Park - no warming house)

Due to improvements being made at Traverse Heights Elementary, there will no longer be a public rink on the property. 

Rink Hours

Please note that the lights turn off at 9 pm.

Enjoy a true northern Michigan tradition in the City!

It is suggested to wear a helmet at all times while skating. Please skate at your own risk.
