Outdoor community ice rinks

Outdoor community ice rinks are maintained by neighbourhood volunteers. These unsupervised skating rinks are for everyone to enjoy. The map above shows open rinks as green, open (skate with caution) in yellow and closed in red.

We update this list once per week on Fridays by 4 p.m.
