Ice Skating at LaVern Johnson Park

During the winter months, the enclosed grassy area in the west portion of LaVern M. Johnson Park is converted into a community ice rink! The weather-dependent rink is made from the adjacent St. Vrain Creek water. The rink is completely reliant on weather, as the Town does not have a chiller to maintain the ice. While the Parks and Public Works teams provide general maintenance, ice conditions are not guaranteed, and users should use always caution when skating. Skating and any use of the rink is at the user's own risk! Helmets (ski or bike) are also highly recommended!

The ice rink hours are 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, weather permitting. Users may rent skates from the concession stand (information below) or use their own. Skating is free; however, the vehicle parking fees are enforced daily in LaVern Johnson Park.

Ice Skate Rentals

Ice skate rentals will be available at the LaVern M. Johnson Park Concession Stand on Saturdays, from noon to 4 p.m. and Sundays from 2-6 p.m. when the rink is open.
To Return: Skate rental returns may be placed in the ice skate drop box located outside the concession stand, or dropped off with the park host.
