County parks announce return of ice skating at Red Arrow Park, chalets at South Shore Terrace and fun at Mitchell Park Domes
MILWAUKEE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee County Parks announced Monday, Dec. 13, the return of ice skating at Red Arrow Park, private chalets at South Shore Terrace and the Holiday Show at the Mitchell Park Domes.
According to a news release, 2021 marks the second season for the South Shore Chalets, which accommodate 2-6 people and are available to rent. Over 1,500 chalets were rented last season, and this year, new menu items this season include a 's'mores kit' for roasting marshmallows.
Each chalet can host up to six people and cost $80 for a 90-minute timeslot, which includes a $40 food/beverage credit. Reservations can be made HERE.
Slice of Ice at Red Arrow Park, sponsored by WaterStone Bank, is expected to open on Friday, December 17 (if weather conditions allow). No reservations are needed this season, and as usual, the rink will open daily for free skating, with skate rentals available for $9 for adults and $7 for under 18. For more information CLICK HERE.
Additional outdoor ice rinks, managed by volunteer friends groups, will also be installed at parks including Lake Park and Humboldt Park, when the weather allows.
When it gets too chilly outside, the Mitchell Park Domes are the destination to head. The warm and cozy holiday show, featuring colorful poinsettia and holiday decor, is open wed-sun, with extended hours every Thursday. The late-night Thursdays also provide the opportunity to enjoy a light show in the floral dome, on the hour starting at 5pm. For more information visit HERE.
Guy Smith, Executive Director at Milwaukee County Parks says, "no matter the weather, or time of year, there's always something to do in the parks - and as well as the new winter beer garden, winter disc golf and outdoor ice skating. When we do get enough snow, sledding, cross country skiing and snowshoeing will return too".
