Sledding & Outdoor Skating

Flag System smallDuring the winter, ice skating and sledding are permitted in selected parks from sunrise to sunset, following an open/close flag system. Important: Supervisors are not on duty at any of the ice rinks or sled hills. If you observe individuals on the ice or sled hills when a red flag is flying or that does not have a flag system, please call 911 immediately.

 

Ice Skating Outdoors
Enjoy outdoor skating (weather permitting) at three parks where a flag system is used: South Ridge Park, Fabbrini (formerly Highpoint) Park and Evergreen Parks. Follow the following flag system to ensure safety. Ice skating is not permitted on lakes and ponds without a flag system or on lakes and ponds that are displaying a red flag.
