Latest Closure Info 6/25/20

Hi everyone! A ruling late last night has placed a temporary pause on our reopening. It's important for us to follow all State and CDC regulations to ensure the safety of our community.  As soon as we get the all-clear we will be BACK AT IT!

Please know that we're thinking of everyone. The gym, the ice rink and the rec facilities are not the same without our wonderful community members - you make the Walker Ice and Fitness Center a fantastic place to work and play!  Please call us at (616) 735-6286 if you have any questions.

When we do get the all-clear, there are rules and regulations that we'll need to follow and these are listed below:

To stay in compliance with regulations put out by the State and CDC to keep you safe during this pandemic, here is how things will be a little different in the first phase of our opening.
