Outdoor Heating

The heat is on thanks to the MSD Warming Zone. Now you can warm up as you wait to pick up your skates or in between figure 8s on the MetroParks Ice Rink. Warm up in the comfort tent located near the Café at the MetroParks Ice Rink. This insulated tent features festive lighting, family-style seating options and is kept at 70 degrees to help provide comfort on even the coldest and windiest of days.


The MetroParks Ice Rink Zamboni regularly resurfaces the ice to ensure a smooth skating experience.
