The ROC (Recreation Outdoor Center) is a multi-use outdoor recreational facility located on the campus of The Rec Center, 3700 Monterey Drive, St. Louis Park. It was completed in 2017 with financial assistance from the St. Louis Park Hockey Association and a Hennepin County Youth Sports Grant.
This facility is used as a covered ice rink in the winter months for hockey, open public skating, broomball and other special skating events. In the spring, it can be converted to a covered, turfed field that allows for baseball, softball, soccer and lacrosse, as well as special events such as the annual spring egg hunt. During the summer, a dry, concrete floor provides space for the Children First Ice Cream Social and a variety of other special events from weddings to movies in the park to graduation parties and more. For information about hosting an event at the ROC, call 952.924.2540.
Highlights of free public events scheduled at the ROC are below. For more events see the Parks and Recreation brochure.
