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 on the list 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, wear appropriate warm clothing and safety gear.
During winter months, natural surfaces will be plowed only when they measure between 10 to 12 inches.
Update: As of March 13, 2019
Due to the warm temperatures, the Parks department will no longer provide natural ice surfaces checks. The Parks department will no longer maintain the outdoor ice surfaces for the 2019 season.
