Ice Skating at LaVern M. Johnson Park

The LaVern Johnson Park ice rink is open!
For the 2020-2021 Winter Season, masks are required when you cannot maintain at least 6-feet distance from other people outside your household. Please adhere to COVID safety protocols when using the rink. 

The ice rink is entirely dependent on cold weather to keep it frozen. In the interest of safety and damage prevention, the rink is subject to closures at any time.

Stay informed with updates on the open/closed status of the ice rink, through the Lyons, Colorado Facebook Page.

During the winter months, the enclosed grassy area in the west portion of LaVern M. Johnson Park is converted into a community ice rink! The weather-dependent rink is made from the adjacent St. Vrain Creek water. The rink is completely reliant on weather, as the Town does not have a chiller to maintain the ice. While the Parks and Public Works teams provide general maintenance, ice conditions are not guaranteed, and users should use always caution when skating. Skating and any use of the rink is at the user's own risk! Helmets (ski or bike) are also highly recommended!

The ice rink hours are 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, weather permitting. Users may rent skates from the concession stand (information below) or use their own. Skating is free; however, the vehicle parking fees are enforced daily in LaVern Johnson Park.

Ice Rink Usage Schedule
