4. Ice Skating at Howard Park: Glide on the ice at Howard Park's outdoor ice rink. Howard Park’s 16,000 square foot ice trail and pond is a premier winter destination for the South Bend region.  The ice trail features rolling hills and soft curves that provide skaters with a diverse terrain when making their way around the loop. The ice pond is attached to the ice trail but provides a more traditional skating experience with an isolated skating area that can be used for learning to skate or skating activities like broomball.  Cost is $7 for kids and $10 for adults (80 minute sessions). Skate rentals available. Season starts November 2023- March 2024. Check website for updates:
