Ice Rink Updates
Today, February 7, the RED flag is now up. With the warm temperatures, the ice is soft.
The Sandwich Park District and the City of Sandwich are thrilled to announce that Sandwich will have an ice skating rink this winter! The 75’x 160′ rink was built at Knights Park on November 30th and will be operational as soon as it freezes. We will be using “red” and “green” flags to let the public know when skating is permitted. Eventually, we hope to set up times for hockey play. For now, bring your own skates and dress for the weather. Volunteers are needed to do maintenance on the rink regularly, so call the Park District at 815-786-8044 if you are interested in helping. For more information click here.
When the ice rink officially opens, here are the tentative hours to be able to play hockey. Click here. There are a few hockey sticks in the office that may be borrowed.
