Ice Skating Rinks

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.

2014-2015 Skating Season

JANUARY 21 UPDATE: The warmer weather is unfortunately resulting in poor skating conditions. Because the warm weather is expected to continue, ice will not be maintained and new ice will not be made. We encourage you to enjoy boot hockey instead of ice skating as a way to get outside and enjoy winter. Please check the weather line for further information should conditions change. 

After a delay due to warm weather, Hopkins rinks and warming houses opened January 1 and will remain open until February 16, weather permitting. See specific rink hours below.

For extended holiday hours, download the Hopkins Outdoor Rink Schedule.
