4th Street Plaza Ice Rink: CLOSED
For the third year in a row, Carbondale Recreation will be maintaining a Downtown Ice Rink at the corner of 4th and Main. This rink is for skating only–absolutely NO stick or ball sports allowed. Rentals are not permitted at this rink. Ice maintenance occurs in the morning Monday-Friday, and the ice rink opens at 12pm these days. This Rink closes at 9pm. Carbondale Recreation reserves the right to close either the Arena or Downtown Rink or both at any time due to unsafe skating conditions.

Come on down to the 4th Street Plaza Ice Rink on January’s First Friday for a free Community Party. We will have a fire pit, roast hot dogs and marshmallows, and drink hot chocolate. Ice skate rentals will be available at the Rec Center until 9pm
