  • Youth Ski & Snowboard Lessons

Outdoor Neighborhood 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 your 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.

Rinks close when warm weather causes unskateable ice, or when temperatures drop below -15 air temp or -25 windchill. Rinks are available for private rental with a minimum of two weeks’ notice.
