How to Keep the Kids Entertained This Winter

Various outdoor and indoor activities offer entertainment for kids in Woodbury this winter.
Lookout Ridge features realistic trees and caves that mimic eastern Minnesota’s landscape.

From open skate hours to seasonal camps, there’s no lack of winter activities for kids in Woodbury this year.

Round up the tots and head over to the HealthEast Sports Center to make use of their open skate hours. From 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., the full-sized outdoor rink is open. We recommend an evening gliding on the ice and embracing the cool breeze before snuggling up with hot chocolate and a cozy blanket.

Those looking to stay indoors can check out Lookout Ridge Indoor Playground at Woodbury’s Central Park. The state-of-the-art indoor playground for children 12 and under boasts life-like designs and sound effects featuring slides, a forest, cliffs imitating the St. Croix River Valley, a tree house and even a cave. A holiday special allows for a purchase of a 15-punch pass for $50 until the end of December.
