Outdoor Skating Rinks

Lace-up your skates and grab your hockey sticks, we’re thrilled to let everyone know Elk River’s outdoor skating rinks are now open! The ice at Handke Pit (1133 4th Street NW) is looking great, and keep in mind this is the only location with a warming house, which is open Monday through Friday from 3:00-9:00 p.m. and weekends/holidays from 1:00-9:00 p.m.

The city also maintains several unsupervised general skating rinks in the following neighborhood parks without warming house facilities:

Mississippi Oaks Park (17998 Elgin Street)
Kliever Lake Fields (17950 Johnson Street)
Riverplace Park (13818 186th Lane)

The City of Elk River reserves the right to close rinks whenever it is in the best interest and safety of the skaters. For up-to-date rink information, call the Weather Hotline at 763.635.1160.


Running at the Arena?

Did you hear? There will be a designated time for runners on the track at the Arena!

When the weather outside is frightful, but you still want to get some exercise in, stop by the Elk River Arena to utilize the indoor track located above the Olympic Rink. The track is open during regular business hours, unless a ticketed event is taking place such as a high school hockey game, and it’s free and open to all! Please note, weekdays from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. the track is designated for runners ONLY.

Don’t quit your exercise routine when the weather cools down, bring it inside to the Elk River Arena where eight laps equals one mile!
