Village Ice Rinks
As of 1/14/15
The skating rinks at Burns Field and Melin Park are currently closed. Increasing outdoor temperatures have caused unfavorable skating conditions. Please obey the posted signs indicating rink availability. Check the web site and the Parks & Recreations Facebook page for updates regarding the status of the rinks.
During the upcoming winter season, the Village will offer outdoor ice skating at Burns Field, Burlington Park and Melin Park. When weather conditions allow (several days of below freezing temperatures), Village staff will begin flooding the ice rinks. It takes a minimum of five days of below freezing weather to produce safe ice. Signs will be posted to indicate if the rinks are open or closed. Updates regarding the rinks and the condition of the ice will be provided on the Village's website and Facebook page. The ice skating rink at Burns Field is lit for evening activities. Limited lighting is available at Burlington Park.
