Out Door Rink (ODR)

[New Boards at the Champlain Park Rink]

The Outdoor Rink received a whole set of New Boards in 2017/18!

New snow expected for 2018/19! Volunteers needed to shovel it!

Volunteers Urgently Needed!

Mother Nature and the Farmer’s Almanac are hinting at a longer, snowier winter this year, so we need extra help to keep our rink in great shape this season. To help with supervision, shovelling, and ice flooding, please contact Jim Kot phone 613-355-7519 or e-mail kris.tom@sympatico.ca. Jim will coordinate the schedule for flooding, scraping, and clearing the ice. You can also support the rink by donating a new shovel, tuning up the snowblower, refreshing the first aid kit, or donating funds. Or just show up with a shovel after a snow fall!

High school students can earn Community Volunteer credit hours by helping out.

Don’t forget to dust off your skates and get them sharpened… Come out and enjoy our community rink and have fun with your family and friends!

The first day of the rink is always weather dependent, it’s not usually sooner than December 27 but not later than January 1st.
The official last day is February 28, weather permitting the Rink Coordinator will try to keep open as long as he can.

Don’t forget to bring your helmet! Skate safe, have fun!
