Winter Activities Update at Ozaukee County Parks

Mee-kwon park hill and Hawthorne Hills golf course hill are both snow covered and open for winter sports. The x-country ski trails are open and groomed at Tendick park and Mee-kwon golf course. The grooming may be on going because of an approaching weather front expecting to drop more snow over the weekend. The ice skating rink is open at Mee-kwon park and will be cleared as weather permits. The warming house at Meekwon park is manned and open from noon to 4:00pm on weekends. The pay-for-play disc golf course is open and ready for play at Tendick park.
