About Saint Paul Skating & Hockey Rinks

Saint Paul has seven ice rink locations. Refrigerated hockey rinks are located at Phalen, North Dale, and Palace recreation centers. McMurray Field has three rinks used exclusively for broomball. 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.

Alert November 24, 2021 Update

Due to warm temperatures, all rinks are still closed at this time to preserve the ice that has been established up to this point. For your safety and to ensure we can fully open the rinks as soon as possible, please do not skate on closed ice rinks. Our staff and dedicated volunteers are working hard to open the rinks as quickly as possible.

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 clean, 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.
