Ruth Cone Skate and Splash

Post Date:02/02/2018 2:39 PM

The Sioux City Parks and Recreation Department is pleased to announce that the Ruth Cone Skate and Splash presented by MRHD outdoor ice skating rink will officially open on Saturday, February 3rd. 

The 5,400-square foot rink, located at 3800 Line Drive, is refrigerated to offer extended use through the winter months.  “We are extremely pleased with the positive responses we have received for the tubing hill. The opening of the ice skating rink will provide visitors with another opportunity to enjoy the park.  What’s unique and special about the ice rink is that during the spring/summer months the rink will convert into a splash pad that will be free and open to the public”, says Matt Salvatore, Parks and Recreation Director.

Ice Rink Hours of Operations:
Mon – Fri         5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Sat. – Sun       9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Fees: 
Ice Skating Only Admission – $5.00. The fee does not include the tubing hill.
Skate Rental – $3.00.   Personal skates will be allowed.

Reservations and fees for the Tubing Hill will include the Ice Rink.  However, ice skate rentals are extra.

"It's something we should all be proud of, it's further investment we're making into the quality of life in the community,"The Missouri River Historic Development has been a great supporter of the project. Many thanks to the MRHD Board, Mayor’s Youth Commission, and the many donors that supported this project!

An official ribbon cutting ceremony will be held soon.  Please check the Parks and Recreation webpage for updates.
