Cougar Creek Boarded Ice Rink

The Cougar Creek Ice Rink location is on the corner of Elk Run Blvd and Canyon Road.

The Cougar Creek Ice Rink will remain closed for the 2015 winter season. You may view conflicting advertising in our Community Guide stating that it will be open by the fall of 2014. The rink sustained heavy damage during the 2013 Cougar Creek flood. It was expected to be repaired by now but contractor shortages have resulted in delays with getting it repaired in time.
