Outdoor Skating Rinks - CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

 The Parks team is hard at work preparing our ice rinks for the upcoming season.

The first week of flooding is a crucial part of the process. These initial floods ensure a solid base layer of ice while also protecting the liners that were installed.

We ask that all residents please stay off of the rinks until we remove all of the signage and announce their opening.

You can look forward to an announcement next week with opening dates for each rink.

The Parks team thanks you in advance for your compliance.

The City does not give permits for any recreational activities on storm ponds. The water levels and ice thickness on storm ponds changes throughout the winter due to the freeze-thaw cycle and it is unsafe to be on these ponds at any time. 

Rink Rules:

  • Before skating on the Lake make sure to check the ice depths to ensure if is safe for use. You can find ice depth information updated weekly on this page.

  • Wearing a helmet is strongly encouraged and protective padding is highly recommended.
  • No smoking or controlled substances are permitted at these rinks.
