Ice Rink Opening for the 2019 Season

Ice Rink at Night Dec. 2017

The City of Manitowoc public ice skating rink will be opening for the 2019 season at 7 AM on Friday, January 18th, weather permitting.  The portable rink is set up in the parking lot in the 700 block of Quay Street, which adjoins Burger Boat Park.  There is no cost to skate; however, you must bring your own skates as skate rental is not available.  Benches and picnic tables around the rink are available for those wishing to rest or change footwear.  At times, the rink may be closed for certain periods in order to smooth it over with more water.  Signs will be posted when it is closed for this or other reasons.  You can also check the City of Manitowoc Facebook page for  updates. 


The 2019 ice rink is made possible by Briess Malt & Ingredients Company, Novak’s Service Center, Keller Structures, Aspire Real Estate, and the City of Manitowoc.
