The Parks department maintains a total of five boarded rinks, four snow bank rinks as well as three natural ice surfaces. The Parks department floods outdoor rinks once the temperature drops to and maintains a constant -10 degrees Celsius for a minimum of one week.
The outdoor rinks are available for all residents to use and enjoy and are available on a first come first serve basis. The Parks department does not book out the rinks or ice surfaces. Remember to always skate with a partner and wear appropriate warm clothing and safety gear.
During winter months, natural surfaces will be plowed only when they measure between 10 inches to 12 inches.
Update: March 15, 2018
Due to the daily changing temperatures, the natural ice surface measurements will no longer be provided.
