Rink Update: Opening Saturday

We’re pleased to announce that our neighbourhood skating rink will be officially opened on Saturday! Given the weather, it has taken us a bit longer to open than we had hoped but we are now ready for skaters. This year, Francis Valenti, Dylan Johnston and Patrick Hoffman will be working once again as our rink attendants. They will be joined by two new attendants, Lauren Macies and Liam Fabris. I would like to welcome all of them on board.

Once again, we will have the large rink at the south end of the park for hockey, the smaller surface near the swings for beginners and non-hockey skaters and the skating oval around the wading pool. As always, we will plan to have our winter carnival later in February.

While we have a number of volunteers who help with the floodings, if you wish to volunteer, please send us your name and email.

On behalf of the Community Group, we would very much like to thank all of those who helped us build the rink this season. The invaluable support of our volunteers who build the snow base and flood the rink has once again been instrumental in being able to provide our much beloved rink to the community.
