MILWAUKEE — Unseasonably warm weather is delaying the building of the ice at Milwaukee County’s Slice of Ice in Red Arrow Park. But those higher-than-normal temperatures are allowing Milwaukee County to keep four golf courses open.

Golf tee times are available by calling the course directly. Contact information is as follows:

  • Grant: 414-762-4646
  • Lincoln: 414-962-2400
  • Whitnall: 414-425-7931
  • Currie (play available on front 9 only): 414-453-7030

For those wishing to ice skate, Wilson Ice Arena, located at 4001 S. 20 St., offers open skate this Saturday from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Rental skates are available in a full range of sizes.

Once the ice is built at Red Arrow Park in downtown Milwaukee, the rink can withstand warmer temperatures; however, heavy rain can bring the season to
an early end. For updates on the rink’s opening and other details, call 414-289-8791 or visit countyparks.com and search “Slice of Ice.”
