GURNEE -- Friendly reminder, the Gurnee Park District provides three, free outdoor ice rinks.
Bring your own skates and check rink conditions before visiting. Ice rinks are located at Betty Russell Park, Hunt Club Park, and Viking Park. The rinks provide free fun for the community, and with the weather we have been experiencing, our residents have already been making good use.
