Due to warmer temperatures that have not yet allowed the ground to freeze, the opening of outdoor ice rinks were delayed to Wednesday, Dec. 26. Crews worked around the clock the weekend of Dec. 22-23 in an attempt to prepare the rinks for opening.
Skating rinks with warming houses are available at eight Minnetonka and six Hopkins park locations.
Weather permitting, rinks will open Dec. 26 and will remain open until Monday, Feb. 18. Call the weather hotline at 952-939-8355 for conditions, closings and updates. For holiday and winter break hours, visit the Outdoor Ice Rinks page or call 952.939.8355.
