Dodge Park Ice Rink


Ice Rink will close for the season on Sunday, March 7, 2021.

Patrons must register in order to skate at the rink this year! With a limited amount of skaters per time block, interested skaters should pre-register online to guarantee their spot!

Registration dates will be released one week at a time on Mondays at 4:30 p.m. to Sterling Heights residents. Registration will be available for non-residents on Tuesdays at 4:30 p.m.

At this time, ice skating reservations for evening and weekend dates beginning Sunday, Jan. 17 will be available for Sterling Heights residents only. Weekday afternoon sessions will still be available for non-residents, with the exception of Monday, Jan. 18 and Monday, Feb. 15 through Friday, Feb. 19.

Please note the following modifications:

  • A signed waiver is required to use the amenity. Skaters under 18 years of age will need a parent or guardian to sign the waiver.

Non-Sterling Heights residents must pay a fee of $5 to skate or enter the Farmers Market Pavilion. Residents and Non-Residents must be registered to be underneath the Farmers Market pavilion whether skating or not due to occupancy restrictions.
  • Any non-resident cancelling a skate session must cancel within two business days before their scheduled skate session to receive a full credit or refund. Business days are Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30am - 5pm. Less than two days or same day cancellation will result in a non-refund.
  • The City of Sterling Heights will issue full credits or refunds to non-residents if the Parks and Recreation Department cancels skating sessions prior to the scheduled time due to warm temperatures or severe weather.
