There’s “snow” much fun in Dublin! We’ve gathered a list of fun things you can do around Dublin this winter.
Which Neighborhood Will Win?
The City of Dublin invites residents to join a friendly challenge to make maintaining physical and mental wellness exciting this winter! The Beat the Winter Blues Wellness Challenge starts Feb. 5. Let your neighbors know because the top three communities (based on size) with the most points will win a prize!
We Heart Our Dublin Parks
Join us from Feb. 15–22 to locate 20 signs with hearts posted in our parks and do your heart good by completing fun, simple exercises. All registrants who share their love for our parks will be entered into a random prize drawing at the end of the scavenger hunt.
Snowman Building Fun
Do you want to build a snowman? When the ground is covered in fluffy white snow, head outside and create your very own Frosty the Snowman!
Snap a photo and submit it using the form below, and it might be featured on the City’s Facebook and Instagram. Be sure to check back on this page, as we plan to suggest themes to change up your typical snowman building routine.
Feel free to leave us a comment about all the fun you had creating your snowman and let us know if he or she has a name!
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Weather permitting, Dublin’s sledding hill is available from 7:30 a.m. to dusk at Scioto Park, 7377 Riverside Drive. Safety regulations, including COVID-19-related protocols, are posted at the park and restrooms are available. Parents should supervise small children and adults are encouraged to hop on a sled and enjoy the ride themselves!
Baby, it’s cold outside! When temperatures dip below freezing for several days in a row, the City opens the ice-skating rink at Coffman Park, 5200 Emerald Parkway.
As weather permits, Dublin Bicycle Ambassadors will continue to be out on paths and roadways advocating for safe winter biking, monitoring safety and reporting maintenance issues.
