The early winter has made it possible for many local winter sports parks to open for the season. Iverson Park is a very popular destination in Stevens Point that offers sledding hills, toboggan runs, ice skating, and cross-country skiing. As of December 19th, Iverson Park opened one toboggan run, the sledding/snowboarding hills, and the ice skating rink.
The most unique thing about Iverson Park is that they offer a snowboarding hill, which is a fun and free way for snowboarders to hit the slopes. Another awesome feature at Iverson is that their are stairs along side of the sledding hill so that you don’t have trace up and down the hill and run out of energy. Remember, there is also one hill at Iverson that is specifically designated for children ages 6 and under. This keeps winter activities safe and stress-free. It probably goes with out saying, but sleds are not allowed on the snowboarding hill and vice-versa.
Iverson Park offers a warming lodge to thaw out your toes after having fun outside. The warming lodge, along with the sledding hills can be rented out to parties, you can call and ask the staff about party rental. The Iverson Park Winter Sports Area is open on Friday nights from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. It is also open Saturdays 12:00pm to 8:00pm and Sundays 12:00pm to 5:00pm.
In case you are looking for something to do this weekend, Iverson Park offers a wide variety of fun outdoor activities that are sure to be a good time for people of all ages.
