Rink Update – temporarily closed

Ottawa – The City of Ottawa is temporarily closing outdoor skating rinks due to warm temperatures that are making ice skating conditions unsafe and detrimental to the maintenance of surfaces.

The City and the numerous volunteers responsible for the maintenance of the skating surfaces urge residents to avoid using the outdoor rinks. Using the rinks in these conditions is very damaging to the surface and could cause additional delays reopening.

Rinks will re-open when the cold weather returns.

Refrigerated ice surfaces at the Rink of Dreams and at Ben Franklin Place remain open despite the warm weather.

Iona Park rink will be re-opened once we are notified by the City that it is safe to do so.  Remember to keep the afternoon of February 26 open for the annual Hampton Iona Winter Carnival.
