Eau Claire outdoor activities open for the winter season


CLEAR WATER, Wis. (WEAU) -When Eau Claire is covered with a layer of snow, it becomes a whole new land of winter games. Whether it’s lacing up the skates or sliding down the toboggan slope, it’s hard to go wrong.

All outdoor rinks in the city and with several heated shelters are now open, including those used for hockey, after a postponed return.

Your favorite winter activities just got easier, with winter mission gear sharing, where you can borrow snowshoes, sleds and more for free at multiple locations around town.

Ice rinks and heated shelters are open from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, with extended hours from noon to 7 p.m. on weekends. Face coverings are mandatory inside heated shelters.

Rinks for general skating and hockey, as well as heated shelters are located at Roosevelt Park, Putnam Heights Park, and Pinehurst Park.

Residents of Eau Claire will be able to enjoy two additional skating rinks this winter in Newell Park and Mitscher Park.

Eau Claire Parks and Rec and Outdoormore join Hello Wisconsin on Tuesday morning at Pinehurst Park to get Chippewa Valley residents outdoors more!
