The Rink is Open!

The rink is up and running thanks to the amazing effort by the maintenance team. This year there are no COVID restrictions from the city. Indoor facilities will be open during supervised rink hours for warming, skate changing, washroom use, and access to the first aid kit. Our student volunteers will oversee the use of the changerooms and the rink during these hours.

Students, if you’re 14 yrs old or older, this is a great way to earn your community volunteer hours. We’re always looking for more help. Sign up is easy with our Google form:

Contact us at if you have questions.

Supervised Rink Hours for 2023:

Mon-Fri 6-9 PM
Saturday 10 AM – 2 PM
Sunday 12-4 PM

Public requests to the city for ice time permits will continue to be forwarded to the rink operators. We encourage all rink users to review the City of Ottawa’s outdoor skating rules.

Here’s how you can help make that happen.

  2. Leave the rink in better shape than you found it.
  3. Please keep snow off the boards (1′ away or over is preferred).
  4. Have fun!
