Public Outdoor Skating Rinks

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.
