What We Do

Ice Skates

We are proud to announce that after years of absence, ice skating is back at Washington Park! Members can borrow ice skates for free just like other equipment in our lending program. Enjoy the thrill and beauty of skating outdoors on our lagoon, then warm up with some hot chocolate at the Urban Ecology Center in Washington Park.

Frequently Asked Questions about Ice Skates:

When can I go skating?
Like all equipment lending at Washington Park, skates are available during our public hours: Tuesday-Friday from 12-6 PM and Saturday from 9 AM – 5 PM. The Lagoon doesn't usually freeze thick enough for skating until January or February.

How do you know if the ice is safe?
We regularly test the ice at Washington Park and follow Milwaukee County Park standards to ensure that it is thick enough for skating. We also allow skating only in the tested (and cleared off) area. We take safety very seriously and if we have any doubts we will not allow skating on the lagoon. Please call ahead (344-5460) to determine if skating is available.

What size skates do you have available?
We have plenty of skates available for kids and adults, women and men. We even have double bladed skates available for young children… perfect for learning to skate!
