The City of Livonia and Parks and Recreation opened a temporary and seasonal ice rink at Greenmead Historical Park in 2021! Due to the warmer temperatures, the ice rink is still closed for the 2023 season. Check back here and on Facebook to see when it reopens for winter 2023.
As this is a service provided by the City, it is incumbent on users to follow current guidelines from the CDC, State of Michigan Health Department, Wayne County Health, Human Services and Veterans Affairs, and State of Michigan executive orders for social distancing and safety.
The temporary ice rink is located near the Farm Complex in the northwest portion of Greenmead Historical Park. There is nearby parking. The ice rink will not be attended by staff. The ice rink will be available during the park’s regular hours of operation (dawn to dusk) and it is weather dependent. Do not use when temperatures are above freezing (32 degrees). Due to fluctuating temperatures, the rink is usually open from mid-January through early March.
There is no cost to use the rink or park. Skate rentals are not available.
