Outdoor Ice Rinks

The town maintains several outdoor neighbourhood skating rinks at town parks for your winter enjoyment. These are unsupervised, use at your own risk, recreational rinks. CSA approved hockey helmets are recommended.

If your neighbourhood wants to establish a rink other than those listed below, it is the residents’ responsibility to maintain the rink. Open the neighbourhood ice rink request form (pdf).

Refrigerated outdoor rink at Trafalgar Park
