Did you know that Shelby Township offers free ice skating and has two sledding hills? The Shelby Township Parks & Recreation Department now has a live webpage where you can go to see if the hills and rink are open.
Weather permitting, Shelby Township’s sledding hills, located at Chief Gene Shepherd Park and Woodall Neighborhood Park, are accessible during daylight hours. Safety regulations are posted at both sites, as well as access to restrooms and picnic shelters. Sledding and tobogganing is also available at Stony Creek Metropark.

When temperatures cooperate, Shelby Township’s ice rink, located at Mae Stecker Park, is opened to the public. Safety regulations are posted at the site, as well as access to restrooms and picnic shelters.
Skate rentals are not available. Ice skating is not permitted at Heritage Garden or Ford Field Central Park. Signs posted on the rink will be visible from 24 Mile Road and will inform residents when the rink is open. You can also visit the Parks and Recreation facebook page for information on programs.
