Handke Pit - 2019 Outdoor Rink**There are no outdoor skating rinks currently open in the City of Elk River. We'll update this page as soon as conditions allow crews to make ice and get rinks in usable condition for residents to enjoy.**

When winter settles in, lace up your skates or grab a hockey stick to take advantage of our outdoor rinks. The city maintains several outdoor rinks as weather permits. We reserve the right to close rinks whenever we feel it is in the best interest and safety of the participants. For up-to-date information, call the Weather Hotline at 763-635-1160.
