Sledding and Ice Skating at Thorndale Park

As the sled hill and ice rink at Thorndale Park are being prepared to open for winter use, we remind park users about the safe use of these winter time facilities.  These Park District facilities are open dawn to dusk and are weather dependent for usage.  Ice Skating is ONLY ALLOWED at the rink at Thorndale Park.  Other park sites with water (Manary Park pond) are OFF LIMITS for ice skating.  The Thorndale sled hill is open as proper snow conditions allow.  Please follow all posted sign information related to these various activities at each site.
