Skating surfaces

Check out our video on Facebook from our Parks Maintenance Manager Brett for some helpful information on our skating surfaces.

We have been flooding the pad daily and it is important for us to prepare a solid base of ice to properly handle the traffic we see. Ideal temperatures for this are below -7, so with the warmer weather we have been using our early morning and later evenings to work on this process. We are anticipating to open for December 1.

The outdoor hockey rink is filled and is currently in the process of freezing. The process of this is different as we need it to freeze deeper.

We will be taking weekly depth measurements to monitor the thickness.

Please watch for further ice updates through the website and Facebook page and we cant wait to see you all skating with your families soon!
