COVID-19 Regulations

In keeping with current Provincial regulations, outdoor rinks will remain open with the following operational rules in place:

  • Heated change rooms will be available for skate changing with restrictions on capacities that will be posted at each site.
  • Washroom facilities will be available for use subject to the same facility capacity limits posted.
  • Rink users are encouraged to maintain a physical distance of two metres (excluding members of the same household).
  • Unorganized outdoor sports and games are currently permitted, however this may change if additional restrictions are implemented by the Province.
  • Organized team games/activities and ice bookings are not allowed.

2021/2022 Season

Some of the City’s boarded, outdoor skating rinks will begin opening for the season starting on Friday, Dec. 24.

These sites include: (South) West Thunder, James Street, Tarbutt, Wayland, North Neebing, West Arthur, South Neebing (North) Current River, North End, Brent Park, Carrick, County Park, West End, and John Kushner.

The remaining boarded rinks will remain closed temporarily as they require further flooding and maintenance prior to officially opening. All un-boarded skating ponds are also still being prepared, pending weather conditions. Skating is not recommended on closed rinks as the ice surface may be hazardous to users.

Outdoor skating rinks are weather dependent and are typically open from mid-December through mid-March. Ice conditions change with the weather and rinks may close without notice.

 The City's Parks & Open Spaces Section maintains the following outdoor rinks:
