Chilly weather does not necessarily mean Dublin residents have to hibernate.

Residents can combat cabin fever this winter with sledding and ice skating in the city.

When there is snow on the ground, Dublin's sledding hill in Scioto Park, 7377 Riverside Drive, is open from 7:30 a.m. to dusk.

Restrooms are available in the park, and additional safety information also is posted there.

Once temperatures are below freezing for several days in a row, the city's outdoor ice rink will open.

The rink adjacent to the stone pavilion in the north meadow of Coffman Park, 5200 Emerald Parkway, is open from 3 to 8:30 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. weekends.

On days when school is not in session, the rink is open from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The pavilion adjacent to the rink has fireplaces that will be stoked to keep skaters warm.

Skate rentals are not available.

Playing ice hockey on the rink is not permitted.
