Hockey is Back at Thornton Park!
Please read this important message from the Director of the Recreation Department from the City of Shaker Heights regarding the re-opening of the rink and New Face Mask Requirements. Please keep in mind that the City is agreeing to reopen the rink at this time under the facts as they stand today. The City may cancel or suspend rink operations if the City determines, in its sole discretion, that the current and ongoing health emergency in the State of Ohio due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the public health and safety, requires that the City close the ice rink and/or Thornton Park Arena temporarily.
Therefore, in order to help keep our Community safe, please make sure you are aware of all the City's current Rink Guidelines and continue to follow all local and federal recommendations.
