Watts is the North Shore’s premier outdoor refrigerated ice rink open from late November through early March. During the off-season, a variety of recreation programs are held in the center’s two program rooms and outside at Watts Park. Each day, Glencoe Park District staffers serve residents of all ages at Watts Center, many of whom have been enjoying facility for generations. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? Long before Watts Center was constructed and the outdoor artificial ice rinks were installed, Glencoe residents still enjoyed outdoor ice skating during the winter months. In the 1950s and 1960s, the park district flooded a natural ice rink in the park near Central School at Park and Greenwood. Today, the professional-grade refrigerated rinks at Watts Center offer a smooth skating surface during the winter months.
