Welcome to the Wallowa Valley Community Ice Rink website!

December 9, 2016 update: The ice rink opened yesterday for the 2016-2017 season! We’re all so excited! It is snowing frequently these days, which is also darn exciting, but be prepared to pitch in and shovel snow off of the rink when you go down there. It literally takes a village to keep the rink running – thank you!

The rink is located at the Enterprise City Park in downtown Enterprise. Come join us for hockey, open skating, or one of our special events on this great community-run, natural ice rink. Skating is free, though donations are appreciated. Our schedule is available in Microsoft Word.

The rink season typically runs from mid December through February, weather permitting. Please check the Wallowa Valley Community Ice Rink page on Facebook to verify that the rink is open before coming down.

Ice skates will be available for day, week, or season-long rental at R’s Consignments in downtown Enterprise, at the corner of River & Main St. The store is open Tues-Sat from 10am-5pm.

Safety considerations:
1. Head injuries are common on hard ice surfaces. Helmets are recommended, especially for beginner skaters.  Helmets are required for all hockey activities.
2.  Certain weather conditions can create treacherous ice conditions, including cracks in the ice.  Skaters use the rink at their own risk and should exercise due care and caution at all times.

3. Supervision of kids is a parent responsibility. Please do not drop off and leave kids that may need supervision.wallowa-valley-ice-rink-hockey-kid-b

“Kids on Ice are Cool”

Kids on Ice are Cool is an ice skate lease program providing skates for local 2-14 year-old kids.  For $20 kids get a pair of hockey or figure skates that they get use for the whole season.  This provides kids with affordable skates through their growing years without having to buy a new pair every year as their feet grow.  Just go to R’s Consignments in downtown Enterprise to rent some skates!
