Winter Outdoor Activities

Cross country skiing

This winter, don’t hibernate ... RECREATE!
Roseville has a variety of outdoor, winter recreation opportunities to choose from:

Neighborhood Skating Rinks

Whether you’re up for a game of hockey, or looking for a quiet skate in the crisp night air, Roseville’s outdoor skating rinks are the place for you. After you skate, come and sit by the fire in one of our park buildings. Rinks are generally open the Friday before winter break, remain open through mid-February. Check the Outdoor Neighborhood Rinks page for current information.

Where to Cross-Country Ski

Cedarholm Trail

The City of Roseville and Roseville Area High School maintain a loop trail (approximately 1 kilometer in length), for both traditional and freestyle skiing, at the Cedarholm Golf Course and Community Building on Hamline Avenue. Users are encouraged to come dressed to ski and jump on the trail right from the parking lot. This trail is available without a fee.

The trail will open after 4 inches of snow has accumulated and will be groomed on the first weekday after any snowfall of 2 or more inches.

Acorn Park (NEW THIS WINTER)

New for 2020, the City of Roseville will offer a traditional loop at Acorn Park. The 1 kilometer trail will run through the open space near the parking lot and ballfields. 

The trail will open after 4 inches of snow has accumulated and will be groomed on the first weekday after any snowfall of 2 or more inches.
