Skate This Way, Bourbonnais!Ice rink brings new winter recreation

Bourbonnais, IL – The Village of Bourbonnais announces its mobile ice rink is ready for public  use at 155 S. Rivard St. Saturday, December 9, is set as the official opening day for the synthetic  73 foot by 50-foot outdoor rink. Residents can purchase tickets online for an hour and a half on the ice and the fee includes skate rental. Outside skates are welcomed; however, figure skates  are prohibited. 

The village is releasing 11 initial December dates and then will reevaluate the new pilot program  before setting a seasonal schedule. Rink information can be found at 

Residents who attended the village’s ‘Rockin’ Around the Tree Lighting’ event on Thursday, November 30, were the first to experience the newest amenity included in the village’s  Community Campus. The outdoor regional entertainment venue and central gathering space  spans 12.5 acres behind the village offices and is scheduled to open in summer 2024.  

“Being able to provide this outdoor activity, ahead of the Community Campus, and just in time for  winter, has been a wonderful opportunity,” stated Tyler Goodrich, Community Development  Technician.  

“We look forward to relocating it to the Campus next year; however, we cannot wait to see all the  smiles and magic the rink brings this year to Bourbonnais.” 

Additional Campus components include a two-sided state-of-the-art performance stage, splash  pad water feature with family changing restrooms, village green event lawn with a 12-foot viewing  hill that will transform into a sledding hill during winter months, a modern ADA-accessible  playground, picturesque Festival Street pedestrian walkway, interconnected walking paths,  shaded sitting areas with firepits, a concession stand and covered pavilion and a revitalized  Children’s Safety Center.
