There was a layer of frost on the windshield this morning. Winter weather is getting close and that means ice rinks.

The city today announced that applications to run an outdoor neighbourhood ice rink now available

If you want a local rink – be in touch with Parks and Recreation.

Neighbours are encouraged to come together to maintain outdoor community ice rinks this winter at select locations throughout the city. Applications for the Neighbourhood Rink program are available now at and are due by Oct. 31, 2022.

Groups looking to organize a neighbourhood rink at pre-approved locations will need a minimum of six people from their community to maintain the rink. Volunteers who are approved to move forward with their rink will need to agree to the terms and conditions set out in the Neighbourhood Rinks program, agree to complete training and agree to keep maintenance records of the rink and provide their own water source.

City staff will install rink boards, hoses and tarps in each location and provide a training manual with tips on ice maintenance. As the colder weather arrives, each neighbourhood group will flood the rinks to get them ready for a first skate and then maintain them throughout the winter.

Neighbourhood rinks are open to all community members to skate for free.
