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!!

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!


Yes, to maintain capacity limits, patrons will need to reserve their 60-minute timeslot online for up to eight people. Then grab your skates and mask, and head to Red Arrow Park!  Affordable skate rentals are also available! 

Skate rentals are available in the warming house for $7 per pair for ages 17 and under or $9 per pair for adults. Sizes range from toddler size 8, to women’s size 11 and men’s size 14.

Get a little skating help with a polar pal! Rent a penguin or polar bear pal for only $1. A $5 refundable deposit or photo I.D. also required. Sponsored by WaterStone Bank.

Ice sleds for skaters with mobility impairments are available to use for free. Simply call with 24-hour notice to reserve a sled: (414) 289-8791.
