Ice Skating in North Side

Select Local Merchants

When winter weather blows its way in off the lake each November, a Cubs parking lot situated in the shadow of Wrigley Field transforms into a full-size ice-skating rink, which remains in operation until the beginning of March. There, guests glide atop glistening steel blades, twirling around the icy expanse while taking in views of Wrigley Field’s iconic exterior and extremely delayed fly balls.

McFetridge Sports Center's tireless staff hosts non-stop activity for 18 hours a day, seven days a week, taking advantage of every square foot the massive facility has to offer. Trainers take to the courts with tennis pupils, practicing on six tournament-quality indoor courts or, weather-permitting, four outdoor ones. Teams face off in the outdoor basketball courts or host showdowns on the baseball field.

Perhaps the most iconic amenity at the Center, though, is its NHL-sized ice arena, which hosts lessons in figure and hockey skating year-round, in addition to competitive play in various ice sports. Those not on the ice can catch the action from one of the 1,200 seats in the stands. They can even opt to burn calories as they spectate by hitting a treadmill at the fitness center, which overlooks the rink.
