John and Dede Howard Ice Rink
Located off of Willa Drive and adjacent to Whittlesey Park, the John and Dede Howard Ice Arena is a great, family-friendly, ice rink within the City of St. Joseph to bring your friends and family.
Ice Arena Manager: Carrie Ogonowski
Address: 2414 Willa Drive (Whittlesey Park)
Phone: (269) 983-8795
The John and Dede Howard Ice Arena was made possible by a generous donation from local residents John and Dede Howard. It has been a great resource to the City by providing fun, family-friendly recreation for the community. Some of the programs the John and Dede Howard Ice Arena hosts are open skating, club hockey, and also our Summer Recreation Program.
The John and Dede Howard Ice Rink is a partially enclosed, refrigerated NHL-sized (200' x 85') outdoor rink. The rink is open to the weather outside; however, it has a roof above it to help protect it from some of the weather's elements. Because it is an outdoor facility, it is subject to weather. Weather may alter the printed schedule of ice times and also the opening and closing dates of the facility. Please either check the news feed of the website or contact the Ice Rink to inquire about weather-related closings.
