Red Arrow Ice Skating Weekend Guide Lake Country Family Fun

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!!

We skated there for the first time in March 2023 and had a great time! We were able to park in an open lot and walk a block to skate. We brought our own skates with us, but they have on site skate rental. The ice rink wasn’t too busy, and we loved watching the other families skate, too.


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 until November 30, a STARBUCKS coffee shop! They are currently looking for a new vendor to take the place after November 2023. So if you get a bit chilly, just step inside to warm up by the fireplace and grab a hot chocolate or warm drink.

  Affordable skate rentals are also available! 


Get a little support from a Skater Helper! Rent a skating aide for only $1. A $5 refundable deposit or photo I.D. is also required. Sponsored by the Milwaukee Admirals.

Ice sleds for skaters with mobility impairments are available to use for free, on a first-come, first-served basis.
