Ice Update: Land Based Hockey Rink & Lake Loop Jan 3/23
You better grab those hockey sticks, pucks and sharpened skates because ALL Skating Surfaces are now OPEN as of today, January 3, 2023. We are pleased to announce that our Land Based Hockey Rink (ODR) and Lake Perimeter Loop are open in addition to our other skating surfaces.
Ice surfaces include our 3 (that’s right THREE) hockey rinks on the lake, Pleasure Rinks & Loops, as well as our LAND Based Hockey Rink (ODR)! A friendly reminder that hockey sticks and pucks are NOT PERMITTED on the Jellybean rink or Pleasure Rink/Loops.
Our ODR will be operating through our reservation system.
• Bookings will be accepted on a first come – first serve basis.
• Only our Land Based Hockey Rink will require reservation with a maximum capacity of 8 people.
• Bookings will open up to 4 days in advance.
• In order to allow fair access to all residents, bookings will be limited to 1-time slot per day, per household. Each skating member must be booked individually. Please only book for the number of members on the ice.
• All other skating rinks & loops will be for walk up usage only, and no booking will be required.
• Walk-ups will be allowed on a first come first serve basis ONLY if time slots have not been filled, or there are no-shows.
• If you are more than 15 minutes late, your reservation may be forfeited for other residents who are waiting as a walk up.
In consideration of other residents who may want to reserve the Land Based Hockey Rink (ODR), please contact the gatehouse at 780-756-6772 to cancel your reservation. Repeated no-shows may result in restricting a household’s booking privileges.
