The City of Kenosha has opened a new 32-foot by 60-foot ​outdoor ice rink at Veterans Memorial Park outside City Hall. Look for special events to be posted on the event page of the city’s web site, kenosha.org. The rink is free and open to the public through the end of March – weather permitting. The rink is operational in temperatures below 50 degrees. Lighting has been installed to allow for skating from dawn until 10 p.m. – the park’s regular closing time. No hockey pucks or sticks are allowed on the ice rink. Food and beverages also are not allowed on the ice rink. You will need to bring your own skates this year as skate rentals will not be available. However, plans are already in the works to add skate rentals and concessions next season. (Note: the rink is briefly closed when park staff is performing maintenance. There is maintenance each morning and throughout the day as needed.)

Dedicated in 2005, the Lone Soldier Memorial features a seven-foot tall lone soldier created in cast bonze as its centerpiece. The work serves to commemorate all of the wars fought by the United States since 1776 as well as the total casualties of each war. The monument complements the Veterans Memorial Fountain in the City of Kenosha’s lakefront park. The fountain features mementos from historic battlegrounds, including an eight-ton boulder from Okinawa and sand from Omaha and Utah beaches in Normandy, and a stainless steel globe with continents made of cast bronze at its center.
