Happening Now


Moon Park Ice Rink

The Moon Park Ice Rink is now OPEN! The rink is free and open to the public. This year the rink has doubled in size to 48ft by 68ft and is located on tennis courts 3 & 4. Only skates are allowed on the rink. No street shoes. No rough housing or checking.  The rink is constructed of acrylic ice. It performs much like real ice, but doesn't require below freezing temps. For the best glide, we recommend sharp skates. At this time, we do not have skates available for rent.

Hours:

Sunday through Wednesday - Dawn to Dusk
Thursday through Saturday   - Dawn to 9pm
Fridays                                   - Hockey Night 5pm - 9pm

Basketball Madness comes to Moon Park in March of 2021! Get ready for a fun interactive scavenger hunt through Moon Park. Each week as the March Madness bracket is released, the logo of each qualified team will be hidden throughout Moon Park. Each Wednesday, your group will be given an hour to search the park to find as many of the teams as possible! That weekend, root for your team, and track the wins and losses of the teams you found in the park. The bracket gets smaller the second week and the items will be harder to find! The group who finds the most winning teams over both weeks wins a Moon Parks basketball prize basket.  While those of all ages are invited to participate, your Captain must be 18 years or older!  After a year of social distancing, this is a great way to safely spend time outdoors with friends and family! Captain’s only register your team!  Register HERE.
