Chicago Wolves Skating Rink Returns to Brookfield Zoo for Winter Season

Lace up your skates and head to Brookfield Zoo this winter season! The Chicago Wolves Skating Rink reopens Saturday, November 2.

Located on the zoo’s East Mall, the rink is not made of ice, but of a synthetic plastic known as Glice®– a material composed of heat-pressed layers of polymers – so no water or electricity is required for operation. 

The 40-foot x 80-foot rink is open daily from noon to 4:30 p.m. throughout the winter season, including on evenings during the zoo’s Holiday Magic, which takes place on Saturdays and Sundays, November 30-December 1, 7-8, 14, 15, 21-22, and 26-31.

The cost for unlimited time for all skaters on the rink is $7.00. A limited number of skates are available to rent for a $5.00 fee. Skaters are welcome to bring their own skates. For more information, visit CZS.org or call (708) 688-8000.
