The City of Hopkins has six parks with supervised ice rinks and warming houses. Skating rinks with warming houses are available for your enjoyment at eight Minnetonka and six Hopkins park locations.
Due to temperatures that have resulted in little to no frost in the ground, flooding of outdoor ice rinks scheduled to start in mid-December has been delayed until further notice. Lack of frost in the ground causes several issues for outdoor skating rink flooding:
We understand residents are eager to get outside and enjoy outdoor ice skating this season. As soon as the weather cooperates and creates conditions conducive to outdoor rink flooding, Hopkins staff will work around the clock to build up ice and create the rinks.
For the latest information, call the weather hotline at 952-939-8355.
Weather permitting, rinks will be open Saturday, December 20 and will remain open through Monday, February 16.
Due to recent warm weather and rain, skating rinks and warming houses will not be opening on December 20.
