Iverson Park

Iverson's Winter Sports Area includes more than its sledding hills and toboggan runs! Outside of the Warming Lodge is a lighted open rink for recreational skating. The Warming Lodge is open with restrooms when staffed. Normal park hours are from sunrise until 11:00 p.m. Staff is on-site at select times on weekends. There is plenty of parking in a lot right next to the rink at the Winter Sports Area at the top of the sledding hill, as well as one at the bottom. Just be sure to check the forecast before heading out, as the Winter Sports Area will close once the temperature/wind chill reaches or is forecasted to be -15 degrees.

Emerson Park

This city park in the middle of Stevens Point takes on a whole different feel come winter. Gone are the pick-up basketball and kickball games because once the air starts to chill you can expect Emerson Park to have their open ice skating rink back in action. This outdoor and unlit rink has plenty of space for all of your jumps and spins, as well as for those who are more inclined to stay grounded while skating. There is plenty of street parking around the park on Ellis St. and East Ave.

East Oaks Park

Once the snow covers the slides and the monkey bars get icy, East Oaks Park features an outdoor skating rink throughout the winter months. Make use of what daylight is available because the rink does not have lights to illuminate it. This park on the eastern side of Stevens Point has an adjacent parking lot with plenty of spots near the ice rink.
