Admission to the park is free. Eight free high quality ice "scooters" are available to assist those that need some help learning how to ice skate.

The park also has a wonderful warming house with fireplace, seating, concession stand (candy, pop, water, hot chocolate, hot dogs, popcorn, pretzels, etc) drinking fountain, tables, free wireless Internet access, free books to borrow, a large HDTV, and restrooms. Board games are avaiable and weather permitting, a campfire area is available Friday & Saturday evenings. There is a limited supply of sleds for use if you do not have your own. The park typically opens in late December and closes in mid March. During the summer months the Winter Sports Park is utilized for Kid's Camp and Tee Ball. There are also three basketball hoops for informal play.
