The Slice of Ice skating rink at Red Arrow Park opens today, December 8th, at 4 p.m.  Red Arrow park is located in downtown Milwaukee at 920 N. Water Street (at the North East corner of Kilbourn and Water).  

The Slice of Ice can comfortably handle about 100 skaters, and since it’s refrigerated, it can stay open in warmer 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.

Skating is free all season long!  To celebrate this year’s opening, skate rental is free from 4-6 pm today.  The normal price for skate rental is $7 per pair.
