Eldridge Park Lagoon Ice Skating - CLOSED

UPDATE: As of Friday, February 5 the lagoon is closed for ice skating.

The lagoon at Eldridge Park is used for ice skating during the winter months. Open water presents unique challenges for an ice skating rink. Ice is unpredictable due to changes in air and water temperature, salinity, water flow, snow cover, etc. Staff documents daily inspections of the ice at the lagoon. Once the ice reaches a consistent (3 day) thickness of 8 inches a green flag will be posted and the lagoon will be open for skating.
