Outdoor Skating & Sledding

Winter Fun 2013-2014

The Glenview Park District will offer outdoor sledding and ice skating at the following locations during the 2013-2014 winter season:

Sledding:

Flick Park, 3600 Glenview Road
Johns Park, 2101 Central Road

Outdoor Ice Skating:

Flick Park, 3600 Glenview Road
Johns Park, 2101 Central Road
Roosevelt Park,  2200 Grove Street

All skating rinks are open for both skating and hockey. Groups should be considerate of one another.

All sled hills and ice skating rinks are lighted for evening activities and close nightly at 10:00 pm.

Sledding is permitted at both parks when snow is considered by the park district to be deep enough. When weather conditions allow (several days of below freezing temperatures), park district staff will begin flooding the ice rinks at Flick, Johns and Roosevelt Parks. It takes a minimum of three days of below freezing weather to produce safe ice. Signs will be posted at the Flick Park entrance on Glenview Road and the Johns Park entrance on Central Road when sledding and skating is permitted on any given day. Open/closed signs will also be posted at Roosevelt Park when those rinks are open for skating. A daily update on whether the rinks and sled hills are open or closed will appear on the home page of the park district website.

Please call (847) 724-3337 option 2 after 10:30 am for current rink/sled hill conditions.

There is no supervision or warming facilities at sledding or skating locations. Anyone using sled hills or ice rinks should be aware that the risk of injury is present. The Glenview Park District encourages everyone to participate in these activities in a safe manner and suggests that children be supervised by a responsible adult.
