Bring an unwrapped gift to donate to Elk River Fire Department’s second annual Fill a Fire Truck Toy Drive, with the goal of ensuring all children within the fire service area have at least one gift on Christmas morning.

Outdoor Ice
Handke Outdoor Ice Rinks

Outdoor Skating Rinks

Coming Soon!
There’s no denying winter is here, and with that being said here’s a quick overview of outdoor skating rinks in Elk River. The City of Elk River maintains five outdoor skating rinks:

  • Handke Stadium
  • Lion John Weicht Park
  • Mississippi Oaks Park
  • Riverplace Park
  • Kliever Lake Fields

Handke Stadium has a warming house which is open weekdays from 3:00 to 9:00 p.m., and weekends/holidays/non-school days from 1:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Public Works staff members focus first on Handke Stadium, typically needing about a week of ideal conditions (daytime highs of 15 degrees, nighttime lows of -5), before starting operations on the other neighborhood rinks. Staff hopes to have Handke Stadium outdoor rinks ready to go by mid-December, followed by the other rinks by or before New Year’s.
