Skating Locations

Indoor Skating

The Northbrook Sports Center is home to two NHL-size ice rinks, community rooms and the Glenkirk Cafe concessions stand.

Outdoor Skating

Outdoor Skating is available at Meadowhill Park and Tower Rink. The outdoor ice rinks are not supervised. Hockey is allowed at Meadowhill Park Ice Rink but not at Tower Rink.

The District needs 72 hours of weather below 15 degrees to begin freezing the rinks, followed by at least 5 days of below-freezing weather before skating is allowed. Skating and sledding involve a risk of injury; therefore, participation is at your own risk. Check the rainout line for the most up-to-date information.

Skating Events

The Northbrook Sports Center hosts several events throughout the year: local, regional, national and international hockey tournaments, figure skating and speed skating tournaments. The Northbrook Sports Center can also accommodate large events such as Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, corporate events and meetings, community events and the annual production of Northbrook-On-Ice.

Northbrook-On-Ice captures the hearts of those who participate each year and of those who watch the spectacle of skill. The annual event has been called the best amateur ice show in the country and has dazzled spectators since 1969.

The Northbrook Valentine Open is a Learn to Skate USA Basic Skills competition held every February.

Holiday Recital
