All four of the city's outdoor skating rinks are now open and ready for you to lace up your skates to enjoy one of Minnesota's best outdoor winter recreations with family and friends.

The lights at Handke will be on daily from dusk until 10:00 p.m., however please note the warming house at Spectrum is only available during limited hours, and Handke's warming house is not yet open until staffing is established. The lights at Spectrum will be on whenever the warming house is staffed.

When it snows, Public Works staff aim to get rinks cleared within 24 hours, following priority clearing of city streets, sidewalks and parking lots.
