MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -Playgrounds in Wisconsin are beginning to fold into the Madison winter scene. Gliding through the holidays and into the New Year, outdoor ice rinks are back.

The ice rink at the Edgewater’s Grand Plaza is now open for the season.

“What’s so fun here is that you get to see kids skates for the first time, you get to see couples on their first date, we’ve seen so many proposals on the ice there’s just so many fun things that happen,” said Amy Supple, Edgewater senior vice president and chief operating officer.

“We really try to create events that are memorable, and this year we’re celebrating out 75th anniversary, so we have seventy-five years of traditions that have happened at Edgewater overtime, and we’re just really happy to carry on that legacy and it’s such a special place, and this ice rink just makes it better,” said Supple.

You can get your tickets online or in person. Each ticket is valid for 60 minutes of ice time beginning at the time slot selected.

Tickets for adults are $7, children (under 12) cost $4. Skate rentals are $3 each.

The Edgewater Ice Rink is open Wednesday – Friday, 4-9p.m. (Open 2p.m-4p.m. Thursday for “Tot Time” for ages 5 & under). On weekends, the rink is open Saturday from 11a.m. to 9p.m. and Sunday, 11a.m. to 7p.m.
