About Saint Paul Skating & Hockey Rinks

Outdoor ice rinks are located at parks and recreation centers across Saint Paul during winter when conditions allow. All hockey rinks have boards and nets. See below for locations, hours, and updates. 

  • Cold Weather Policy: Rinks will close if temperatures reach -25F.
  • Warm Weather Policy: In order to prevent extended closures due to damaged ice, rinks will close if meltwater is visible on the surface.

January 31 Update: All ice rinks are closed

Due to unseasonably warm temperatures, all ice rinks are now closed. Based on the current forecast, it is unlikely rinks will reopen. For your safety and to prevent damage to our athletic fields, please do not enter closed rinks. Never use rink areas as a dog park. Please visit one of our dog parks for off-leash fun. Please visit one of our dog parks for off-leash fun.

While this skating season has been unexpectedly short and not without disappointment for many avid skaters, there are other ways you can still enjoy this unpredictable Minnesota winter.

Volunteer at a rink

Experience shows the best rinks are those that benefit from the assistance of community volunteers. Volunteers are needed to help with rink flooding and other duties. Night availability is especially desired. Interested in becoming a volunteer? Tell us more by completing the volunteer form.

Please, shovel snow off the ice and over the boards

Our maintenance crew and dedicated volunteers work hard to keep the rinks clear, but Minnesota snow can pile up fast. Even if you feel you can't commit to volunteering, you can still help by shoveling snow when you visit the rinks. Please be sure to shovel snow off the ice and over the boards. When snow gets shoveled against the boards and around the edge of the rink, it often freezes and can quickly reduce the skateable surface area of the rink. Thank you for doing your part to make Saint Paul rinks great.
