Columbus Blue Jackets Winter Park presented by Worthington Industries, a month-long celebration of the winter season, is now open through Sunday, February 21 at McFerson Commons across the street from Nationwide Arena.

The centerpiece of Winter Park returns with an NHL-sized ice rink that is open for 31 days
of public skating, hockey and a variety of community events.

For updates on Winter Park and everything Blue Jackets, be sure to sign up for Flag Bearer - The Official E-Newsletter of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

  • In addition to skating activities at the rink and fire pits for gathering, Winter Park features a large heated tent that serves as the hub for weekend entertainment, food and beverage service and home to a Blue Jackets replica locker room.

  • Another attraction is a video board near the ice rink that will show Blue Jackets games on weekends.

  • During the evenings, McFerson Commons and the nearby stretch of Nationwide Blvd. will be aglow as tens of thousands of lights will adorn the trees of the Arena District and welcome Winter Park visitors.

  • The opening weekend of Winter Park festivities will also include The 5th Line 5K Race presented by OhioHealth on Saturday, January 23.

  • The 3.1-mile road race will start at Nationwide Arena and finish at center ice inside the arena and is open to runners and walkers. For more information or to register for the race, visit
