Once winter settles in, it's usually not hard to find an iced-over lake or pond in West Michigan to skate on, but everything from wind and snow to questionable ice conditions can make outdoor skating less than ideal at times.

If you're looking for some smooth ice without having to brave harsh weather, we have the top options for you around Grand Rapids.

Hours vary at each rink for open skate. Most offer weekend hours. Some also offer open skate during the week. Hours can change due to a variety of factors including hockey tournaments and more. It is recommended that you confirm the rink's open skate hours for the day before making a trip.
