The opening of the rinks is dependent on the weather.  In order to form a base from which staff can flood, we require a significant amount of snow that contains more moisture in order to pack them, followed by considerably cold weather (-10C or below) for at least a week.  Staff constantly monitor the weather conditions and when they are favourable, they try to flood the outdoor rinks.

  • Outdoor rinks are not supervised by City Staff.  The lights automatically turn off at 11PM.
  • Due to COVID-19, the buildings will remain closed and permits will not be issued for the 2021/22 season.
  • All users are encouraged to assist with shoveling the ice. 
  • Capacity on rinks and hills is limited to 25 people at time.
  • Skating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please be kind and share the rink.
  • Face coverings are mandatory at all times, on and off rinks and hills.
  • Skaters and sliders must maintain a physical distance of 2 metres (6 ft) both on and off rinks and hills and should only have close contact with people in their household or essential supports.
  • If capacity has been reached, skaters and sliders are asked to come back at another time.
  • Change rooms and washrooms are not available.
  • Stay home if you are ill and getting tested if you have symptoms of COVID-19.
