Come to one of the coolest spots in town.
Looking for a place to lace up your skates and enjoy nature in her winter beauty?
All Metroparks ice is “enter at your own risk.” Ice on Pearson Lake and Mallard Lake at Oak Openings Preserve are cleared when ice is at least 5.5 to 6 inches thick.
Ice Skating at Pearson
At Pearson, lights have been added near the lake so you can continue ice skating even after the sun sets. Pearson is open until 8 p.m. every day when conditions are right for skating.
Ice Skating at Oak Openings Preserve
Mallard Lake at Oak Openings Preserve is also a popular ice skating destination (daytime only).
