If you are needing an excuse to get the family out of the house this winter for some fresh air and exercise, this is it. The Ice Skating Loop in Maple Grove's Central Park is set to open for the winter season on November 25th.

The ice loop is a 810 foot long and 20 foot wide trail designed for pleasure skating. The loop has refrigerated ice, and if you stay long enough, you might get a chance to see the Zamboni drive by!

This loop is a great place for new and experienced skaters alike. It is for leisure skating only, so no tag games, hockey gear, or people power skating past. Just nice relaxing ice skating.
