Ironworks Ice Rink

Ironworks Ice Rink 1


Ironworks Ice Rink has just opened at Beutter Park in Mishawaka.  There are ice skating paths, and you can also veer off the path to skate inside a square rink.  The path is close to the Riverwalk, and offers views of the St Joseph River.

The new bumper cars and Icebyks (like a big wheel or tricycle) offer unique fun on the ice, and are available for rent during specific hours.  Reservations are needed for any of the three activities.
