Naperville Park District's outdoor skating areas can open only after a period of extreme cold.

This year, the park district is posting red flags or green flags at ice skating rinks to indicate whether they are closed or open, providing a user-friendly and visible signal to people at park locations.

 

The park district also updates the status of ice rinks at www.napervilleparks.org/cancellations, allowing residents the ability to check on the status of rinks prior to leaving their home

Skaters should not use ice rinks when they are posted as closed on the website or when a red flag is flying at the rink.

The park district maintains five skating areas, which are listed at www.napervilleparks.org/wintersportsfacilities. As of Jan. 20, the skating area at Wolf's Crossing Community Park was able to open. The park district is working to establish ice at the remaining rink locations.

Check www.napervilleparks.org/cancellations for updates on the other ice skating and ice hockey rinks, or check the color of the flag at the location.
