Dodge Park Ice Rink in Sterling Heights

The city of Sterling Heights unveiled the brand new Dodge Park Ice Rink this winter. Learn a little about it and when you can swing by to skate it.

Nothing says winter fun quite like an outdoor ice skating session with the family and Macomb county families now have another option when deciding where they want to lace up their skates.

In early December, the city of Sterling Heights unveiled a new open-air, refrigerated ice skating rink available for residents and non-residents to enjoy this winter.

The new ice rink, which is the first of it’s kind in the city, is located in scenic Dodge Park and features a sheet of 70- by 140-foot ice for families to twirl and glide over.

And because the rink is open-air and not located in a building, they can do it under the glow of the city’s lights and beneath the stars.

“An ice rink is one of the amenities that have been requested by our residents for decades,” Kyle Langlois, the cities parks and recreation director told the Macomb Daily. “We are in metro Detroit, there’s a lot of interest in hockey and skating. We wanted to build an ice rink and we wanted to do it right and we did that.”

The Dodge Park Ice rink is located at 40620 Utica Road in Sterling Heights. Hours will vary based on the weather but are typically 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday-Saturday and 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday.

Residents of Sterling Heights skate for free. Non-residents can skate for just $5/person. Skate rental and sharpening are available for $3 and $5, respectively.
