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.
All unrefrigerated outdoor ice rinks will be closed for the season effective March 8, 2021.
Trafalgar Park Community Centre’s outdoor rink will also close for the season as of March 8, 2021, due to forecasted rising temperatures over the next 14 days. Final pre-registered skates for this season will be on March 7.
Unfortunately, our outdoor ice cannot be maintained when temperatures are consistently above freezing.
Thanks for a great season and see you next year!
After a snow event, ice rink snow clearing will commence within 24 hours of the end of the snow fall.
To protect the ice surfaces of our rinks, please do not use the ice on days where the temperature is mild. When the temperature rises above freezing, the ice can get quite soft and can be damaged by use.
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).
Please follow all posted guidelines for outdoor rink use.
