The ice rink will be located in the outfield of the Hemlock Ball Park. The rink was purchased from Nice Rink by the City for free use by the public. The brackets and wall will be placed in Hemlock Park Softball outfield in November or December, depending on weather conditions. We will then wait for the weather to be consistently in 20’s and teens before placing in the liner to form the ice. We ask that patrons stay away from the rink during unseasonable conditions (warmer weather and melting ice). These are the posted rules


Hemlock Park is located at the east end of Hemlock Street and Warren Avenue. It is also the beginning of Riverwalk. Hemlock Park offers a wide variety of different activities. It is used by people throughout the greater Big Rapids area.
