Ice skate outdoors this winter for fun, free entertainment for the whole family! Outdoor ice maintained by the City will open as soon as maintenance equipment (snow clearing and watering trucks) can safely drive on the ice. Please obey all posted signs.
Check out the City website for locations, hours, amenities, and ice conditions before you go. Skate rentals are available at William Hawrelak Park Pavilion.

Community League Rinks & Skating Trails
See the Community League Rinks page to find your local rink.
Kenilworth and Glastonbury Community Leagues have built skating trails for the 2018/2019 winter season. Residents from all community leagues are welcome to use the trails. Kenilworth Community League welcomes donations to support the trail. Both trails are lit at night.
City Drainage Bylaw 18093 prohibits any activity that may result in direct contact with water in stormwater lakes, including skating. The City has signage posted at all stormwater facilities advising residents to keep off the ice because conditions are unknown. Due to the nature and the function of stormwater lakes, ice conditions can be unpredictable and dangerous. Moving water, temperature changes underwater due to vegetation or drainage, and fluctuating weather conditions can all result in unsafe ice conditions not visible from the surface.
