Park Maintenance staff have been working hard to take advantage of the cold temps and get ice made at Elk River’s four outdoor skating rinks. Just in time for the holidays - Handke Pit is NOW OPEN. The other three rinks (Spectrum Athletic Fields, Mississippi Oaks Park, and Riverplace Park) will hopefully be ready for action sometime next week.
Handke Pit, located at 1133 4th Street NW, features two rinks with boards, an open skating area, benches and lights which will be on between 4:00 and 10:00 p.m. daily. The warming house is not yet available, so be sure to dress appropriately. Stay up to date on outdoor rink updates by visiting ElkRiverMN.gov/OutdoorSkating.
Happy skating, Elk River!
