Slice of Ice-Red Arrow Park, Milwaukee

Red Arrow Park is in the heart of downtown Milwaukee at 920 N. Water St. Milwaukee, WI.  During the regular season did you know you can SKATE FOR FREE (when  you bring your own skates) during regular operating hours!!!

Did you also know that the outdoor rink is open from December through February (or March if the weather allows).  Don’t worry there is a warming house as well that has restroom facilities, houses the skate rentals, lockers, snacks and drinks, and oh yes, a STARBUCKS coffee shop!
