Ice Skating

People skating at Centennial Lakes Park

Centennial Lakes Park features a 10-acre lake that is groomed daily during the winter for ice skating. Spread out over three main ponds connected by narrow, meandering canals, the rink gives skaters a unique skating experience.

When Skating Opens

Current Status: Closed

Ice skating at Centennial Lakes Park usually opens for the season in late December depending on weather, and closes in mid-February.

The larger ponds require thicker ice, for safety, than the rinks at neighborhood parks. The ice is groomed and open to skating as soon as it's safe.
