Community Ice Rink Opens Downtown
The Royal Oak Community Ice Rink, located at Troy and Third next to the Royal Oak Police Department, is open to the public - and it's free!
Frosty conditions have made it possible for Department of Public Service employees, Lee Collick and Jeff Derringer, to build the rink and prepare the ice for skating. The pair volunteered their time to construct the 88-by-40 foot rink and groom the ice for residents.
As weather permits, the temporary rink is open seven days. It is often lit in the evenings for skaters. Picnic tables and a portable toilet are available on site. Please note: Hockey playing is not allowed at the rink.
Stay Warm, Royal Oak!
