The warming house days and locations are:

The warming houses opened on Dec. 26, 2012 and remain open through mid-February 2013. The hours are:

Skating sites without warming houses are located at Augsburg, Fremont, Jefferson, Madison, Roosevelt and Taft parks. All, with the exception of Fremont Park, have lights until 9 p.m.

In the event of inclement weather the department may decide to close the rinks for the safety reasons. The buildings will remain open unless:

  • The air temperature is 10 degrees below zero or the wind chill is 20 degrees below zero;
  • Unusually warm temperature soften the ice making rinks unsafe for skating;
  • There is a snowfall of two or more inches.

Residents may call the department's weather line at 612-861-9189 for information on rink and building closures.
