All ice skating rinks are now closed for the season.  No skating/walking/etc is permitted on the ice.

Please follow our flag system on ponds open for skating. A green flag means skating is open and a red flag means Danger! Keep off! 

When weather conditions allow (several days of below freezing temperatures), park district staff will begin flooding the ice rinks. It takes a minimum of three days of below freezing weather to produce safe ice. A daily update on whether the rinks are open or closed will appear on here or on

Weather permitting, ice rinks are flooded at the following locations:

  • Sunset Knoll {at the basketball court}
  • Lombard Lagoon {Grace Street & Marcus}
  • Madison Meadow {Madison Street & Ahrens Avenue}
