Outdoor ice rinks update 

With the shorter and warmer winters in Minnesota, parks staff have been unable to maintain quality ice. Reducing the number of outdoor ice locations and moving towards regional service versus neighborhood service allows staff to utilize resources to better maintain the rinks, clear snow, and staff the warming houses.  

Participation was studied at all neighborhood ice rinks,  and the decision was made to reduce outdoor ice at two neighborhood parks -- Elm Creek School and Donahue North. The Parks and Recreation Department will continue to service outdoor ice at seven regional sites throughout Maple Grove.
