The Best Place for Skating - Best of Milwaukee 2012, 2013, 2014 Award Winner
Featured on 88.9 Radio Milwaukee's Community Stories
Milwaukee County's Red Arrow Park, in downtown Milwaukee, was redesigned in 1999 with private and public funding and is now home to Slice of Ice. The park was named to honor the 32nd Red Arrow Division of the US Army. A red granite sculpture depicting the insignia of this division stands in the park today.
Outdoor Refrigerated Rink
Comfortably accommodating 100 skaters at a time, the 128-by-95 refrigerated oval is open from December through February—or March if the weather allows! The rink is bordered by a 3-foot-6-inch railing, so even if you're a skater with weak ankles, you can come out to enjoy the ice.
In the Warming House. . .
Through the floor-to-ceiling windows in the warming house or from the rooftop overlook, you'll have a great view of all that's happening on the ice.
