Outdoor Rinks and Ponds

Our outdoor rinks rely on volunteers through the adopt-a-rink program to assist in making these spaces operational and give residents an economical option for fun recreational winter activities.

Outdoor rinks, monitored by city staff, are typically open from December to March and are weather dependent.

Always check the sign posted at the pond for the rating before skating. Do not skate on anything that is less than six (6) inches in thickness.
