In 2016, the Wicker Park Advisory Council Wicker Ice Committee worked in partnership with the Chicago Park District, 1st Ward Alderman Joe Moreno, WPB Chamber and WPB SSA#33 to open a new ice rink in historic Wicker Park at 1425 N Damen Ave in Chicago. The community funded and maintained non-refrigerated 60ft X 120ft rink was installed adjacent to the park’s fountain. The rink has four 4ft walls with two gates located near the sidewalk, directly east of the park’s historic fountain. The rink was installed and filled on Saturday, December 5, 2015.

The 2016 season will begin with the Wicker Park Garden Club’s Fountain Decorating Social on Saturday, November 19, 2016 from 10am to 4pm. The garden club and the park’s advisory council decorate the fountain and twelve urns each November for the Winter season and invite Friends of Wicker Park to assist. All who attend the social are asked to bring finger food to share. Register for the event by contacting doug.wood@wickerpark.org.

The rink will be installed on Saturday, December 3, 2016 and be open as soon as the ice freezes.

The Chicago Park District’s field house will be open during the hours of operation of the rink as a warming space and for restrooms, but will be closed on holidays. The rink will be removed on March 1.

The combination of the rink and the historic fountain provides numerous photographic opportunities for skaters and guests to the park during the winter season.
