Outdoor Ice Rinks

Outdoor Ice Rinks

Winter officially arrives in Winnetka when the outdoor ice rinks are up and running. Whether it’s children learning to skate for the first time with their parents, pick up hockey games with friends, or grandparents watching their grandchildren skating and reminiscing about their own childhood, our outdoor ice rinks in Winnetka are a rite of passage for generations of residents. Come on out to our outdoor ice rinks and continue the tradition!
