City officials say as soon as the ice is safe, the rink will be open to the public. Stay tuned for updates on the City of Bettendorf's social media page. 

Last year the rink remained closed for COVID and budgetary concerns.

Once the rink is open admission will be $3 to skate with a $2 skate rental fee. Family night will be every Sunday, 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. For a family of four; two adults and two children the fee is $10. Each additional family member is $2. We'll keep you posted when we know the rink is open to the public.
