Rotary Park


***Camping is not allowed in any City park***

Located approximately one mile north of the Ouray Hot Springs Pool on Highway 550, Rotary Park is a multi-use park maintained by the City of Ouray. Rotary Park has several picnic tables set comfortably in the shade of a grove of tall spruce and fir trees. Many times rock climbers can be seen on the tall cliff that immediately adjoins the border of Rotary Park. A short walk to Chautauqua Lane, across the highway, leads to the Uncompahgre River Trail.

In the winter Rotary Park is the location of Ouray’s popular ice rink. Rotary Park has restrooms and water available in the summer months.

Ouray Ice Skating Rink - CLOSED for season due to COVID-19
Ice_skaters_smallThe ice at the Ouray Ice Rink is created naturally by the cold night time temperatures of winter. Depending upon the weather, the rink is typically open from mid December until late February or early March - providing hours of fun. The rink is lit at night for the special experience of skating under the stars. The small warming hut provides shelter when needed, but most people stay warm simply from the activity of skating.

Bring your own skates, or you may rent ice skates at the Ouray Hot Springs Pool.

Every winter broomball and hockey leagues are formed for those who desire a little playful competition on the ice.

Friday - Monday 11am - 9pm
Tuesday - Thursday 11am - 5pm

The Ice Rink may be closed at other times for repair and maintenance.

Interested in broomball or hockey? Please contact the City Resources office, 970-325-7065,  or email for more information.

Please do not skate on the ice when temperatures are above freezing or when water is standing on the ice. 

Maintained by a small group of dedicated volunteers, the Ouray Ice Rink is a popular winter activity attracting locals and visitors seeking the pleasures of winter in the San Juan Mountains. After skating, a soak in the Ouray Hot Springs Pool and a warm meal in town make for a perfect day!
