Free community ice rink now open at Burnham Playfield


Milwaukee Recreation has partnered with Epic Center Community Organization (ECCO) to open a free community ice rink at Burnham Playfield, 1755 S. 32nd Street.

Open skating will take place every Wednesday from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and weekends from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. A hotline (475-8192) will be updated daily to inform if the rink is open or closed based on weather/ice conditions.

A limited number of skates will be available for adults and 3rd-8th grade students to borrow for free on-site. The skates were collected and donated by ECCO, Maryland Avenue Montessori School, and Milwaukee residents who responded to requests on social media. For younger children, the department will have five pairs of skates that can be attached to children’s boots or shoes (youth sizes 6-13).
