Como Lake Park's winter activities include Sledding and Ice Skating, when weather permits. Please note that the ice rinks are maintained as necessary based on weather or use conditions. Certain weather conditions may close the rinks on little advanced notice. In the event of snowfall, preparing for winter sports is secondary to ensuring roads, parking lots and sidewalks are clear and safe for vehicles and pedestrians. In this event, the rinks may not be open on time but will be as quickly as possible.
The Casino is open daily for restroom use only (indicated by red arrow).
