Community Rinks

Community Leagues manage many of their own outdoor skating rinks. These rinks may allow hockey or shinny. Check with your community league for more information.

Be Safe on Ice

City-operated ice surfaces are monitored on a daily basis and will be closed if unsafe. Be safe on ice—please keep off closed ice surfaces and obey all signage.

Note: Sticks, balls and pucks are only allowed in a designated shinny/hockey area. Pets are not allowed. For more information, please see public skating guidelines.

Skating Prohibited

City Drainage Bylaw 16200 prohibits skating on stormwater lakes. 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.

For More Information

For information about rinks in your neighbourhood, see Community League - Rinks.
