Northbrook Park District workers have been preparing and inspecting the ice rinks for more than a week, and the outdoor ice is now ready for skaters. The two rinks are:
- Tower Rink, 1225 Cedar Lane, behind the Northbrook Village Hall
- Meadowhill Park Rink, 1479 Maple Avenue, by Northbrook Junior High School
Both rinks are lit at night and open until 9:00 p.m. Sled hills and ice rinks are only open when weather allows, so check the park district website before visiting.
Rental skates are available at the Northbrook Sports Center, 1730 Pfingsten Road, for $8/day. Call 847-291-2993 for availability. Hockey is allowed at the Meadowhill Park Rink.
The Northbrook Park District also has sled hills at Wood Oaks Green Park and Techny Prairie Park and Fields.
Before heading to one of the ice rinks or sled hills, people should visit the Park District website at nbparks.org and click on the Winter Facilities button on the bottom right to find current facility status.
