Just because it is winter doesn’t mean you need to hibernate the season away! Get out and enjoy all that Findlay has to offer, especially outdoors!
Raccoon Run Winter Sports Center
Once snow has accumulated to 3-4 inches on the ground the Raccoon Run Winter Sports Center at Riverside Park opens! The sports center offers snowshoes and cross country skis to rent on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.. If you are a beginner, make sure to take advantage of the beginner cross-country ski workshops the parks offer and snow shoeing lessons are available upon request. If you are an old pro make plans to take your valentine on the night ski in February!
Sledding is must for children of all ages…and adults too! There are so many spots throughout Hancock County to sled. You have to check out the Findlay-Riverbend Reservoir, Rawson Park, and Island Park. Ask around and find out what other spots of most people and there are plenty of opportunities for that fun in Hancock County as well! Make it a true tradition by grabbing a meatloaf sandwich at The Fern or a dark hot chocolate at We Serve. Coffee afterward!
Outdoor Ice Skating
The Village of McComb has added a new opportunity for ice skaters – an outdoor rink! Weather permitting, skaters can enjoy the rink during daylight hours as well as under the lights on Friday and Saturday. You must bring your own ice skates to enjoy the rink! The rink is located in the village park in McComb, 180 Park Dr. South.
Indoor Ice Skating
Ice skating at The Cube is the best of both worlds. You get to enjoy a winter sport without the chilly temperatures! The Cube offers public skates on the weekends as well as a variety of great classes every day such as Mom and Tot or Open Hockey. You can see the monthly ice schedules on the City of Findlay Recreation’s facebook page. Or, if you’re more of a spectator, catch a Findlay High School Hockey game, a FAHA Hockey game or an Ice Show!
Disc golf probably isn’t something that immediately comes to mind when you think of winter activities. But in Hancock County there is no better time to play! The disc golf course at Riverbend Recreation Area is open year round and you won’t want to miss the Ice Bowl in the beginning of February! This event is for new or seasoned players and features 20 holes of disc golf.
Outdoors or indoors, there is plenty to do in Hancock County this Winter. Check out our event calendar for even more to do this season!
