Friday will be the last day to strap on those silver skates or to take an ice-sled for a spin at Slice of Ice in Red Arrow Park, 920 N. Water St.

At 11 p.m., the 128-by-95-foot refrigerated oval rink will close for the day and for the season.

Until then, everyone is welcome to bring their own ice skates and skate for free or to rent a pair at the warming house. WaterStone Bank Penguin Pal skating supports for the littlest skaters will also be available for rent. Ice-sleds, or sledges, will be available for free, upon request, to patrons with mobility disabilities.

“We’ve had a great season,” said Joe Mrozinski, Assistant Chief of Recreation and Business Development. “With the warm weekend ahead, though, we don’t want to overtax the rink’s refrigeration system. We’ll have to shut it down.”

Skate rentals for adults are $8 per pair; for children, $7 per pair. Penquin Pal rental is $1 plus a photo ID or $5 refundable deposit. Rentals begin at 11 a.m.

Sledges are made available through the partnership with RampUp Milwaukee, an organization dedicated to making Milwaukee more accessible.
