ICE RINK UPDATE – Christmas 2020

Sad News! – Quiet Waters Park Ice Rink will not open for the 2020/21 season due to the recent holiday spike in COVID19 cases.

The County’s Department of Recreation and Parks and Department of Health made this difficult decision in an effort to protect our staff and citizens and lessen the community spread.

The Quiet Waters staff will be working on ice rink facility renovations so your skating experience will be better than ever next year!

Reminder to all friends of the Park, the Visitor’s Center also remains closed to the public until further notice.

For updates, check the Ice Rink Facebook page

Remember, stay safe:

WEAR A MASK

KEEP YOUR DISTANCE

WASH YOUR HANDS
