Public Outdoor Skating Rinks

In the winter we create and maintain ice skating rinks. There will be no warming houses during the 2022 season. 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)  
  • Rose Street near Carver (Traverse Heights Elementary School). 
  • State Street between Railroad and Hope (F&M Park - no warming house)

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.
