The Slice of Ice skating rink at Red Arrow Park is now open for the season. Red Arrow Park is located in downtown Milwaukee at 920 N. Water Street across the street from the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts.

Slice of Ice can comfortably handle about 100 ice skaters, and is refrigerated, so it can stay open in temperatures as high as 50 degrees.

In addition to ice skating, the park offers a warming house with restrooms, lockers, skate sharpening, and a Starbucks.

Ice skating at Slick of Ice is free all season long! Skate rentals are available for $7. For Slice of Ice hours, take a look at the Milwaukee County Parks website.
