Outdoor Rinks

The outdoor rinks operate seasonally, weather permitting.  These outdoor rinks require a period of time of constant temperatures of -10 celsius or colder to remain frozen and safe.  These outdoor rinks are not monitored.  Proceed with caution when utilizing.  Please note, these rinks are maintained by volunteers.

Updated January 19/24:  The following outdoor rinks will be operating this coming winter when the weather permits:


We are currently looking for volunteers to help with flooding and other minor tasks for all of our outdoor rinks.  If you live in one of these neighbourhoods that hosts an outdoor rink and would like to assist, please consider volunteering a few hours a week.  The City provides volunteers with water access, hoses, nozzles, signage and some training to create good quality ice throughout the winter.
