Currently Accepting Ice Skate Donations

The City of Milton will re-open the Central Park outdoor ice rink in 2012. In October of 2012, the Mayor and Common Council approved the project work necessary to re-open the rink. Due in large part to a generous donation from Air Products, a new clay liner was installed this fall, which will allow the rink to retain water and the rink to be re-opened. In recognition of their generous donation, the Parks and Recreation Commission has recommended that the rink be re-named from the current Tomah Ice Rink to Air Products Ice Rink. Weather permitting, the grand re-opening of the rink will be announced in mid-December.

In anticipation of re-opening the rink and the park’s adjacent warming house, the City of Milton is accepting donations of new and used ice skates, to provide families that do not have skates the ability to still use the park. People interested in donating either new or used ice skates can drop them off at Milton Public Library or at Milton City Hall, both located at 430 E. High Street.

If you have questions about donating ice skates or the grand re-opening of the ice skating rink please contact City Administrator Jerry Schuetz at (608) 868-6900 ext. 4 or via e-mail at jschuetz@ci.milton.wi.us.
