The Oglesby Parks and Recreation Department has rolled out the ice skating rink, just in time for the season to roll out some wintry weather.

Use of the rink is dependent on the weather. When it is open, hours are from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Skaters will know the rink is open when the orange fence is open and the green ice rink sign reads “open.” If the fence is closed, the red “closed” sign will be up. Please refrain from using the rink at those times, as doing so will risk damaging the liner–and ruining the rink for everyone.

Hockey hours are from 3 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday and from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday. In the interest of safety for other skaters, hockey is not allowed at any other time.

Skates are preferred and are not available to rent at this time. The City is accepting donations at City Hall of new or used skates. If you know of a person or organization that would be willing to help out, please pass the information along and ask them to contact City Hall.

The ice rink is located in the empty lot downtown–on the north side of East Walnut Street, across from the city parking lot.
