Naperville outdoor skating rinks are open, but check status before you go
The Naperville Park District's ice skating season runs through Feb. 15, though officials warn the operation of the outdoor rinks is dependent upon consistent winter weather.
The five natural ice rinks throughout the community are not refrigerated and therefore need three to five consecutive days with below-freezing temperatures and overnight lows in the teens, according to park district officials.
Executive Director Ray McGury said the park district may explore offering refrigerated ice in the future, "as the last few winters have provided less than favorable conditions for ice skating."
The district's sled and snowboard hills also require a minimum of 2 inches of snowfall to be open for use.
