Outdoor Rinks and Warming Houses

Outdoor pleasure skating and hockey rinks are closed for the 2017 season due to warm temperatures.

Warming House Operations

There are two warming houses with city staff on duty during the outdoor skating season. The warming house at Rambling River Park contain an indoor restroom. The warming house at North Creek Park offer a portable toilet adjacent to the warming house.

Warming House Closing Policy

  • The wind chill factor is -20 degrees or below.

  • Unusually warm temperature (+40 degrees or above) softened the ice, making the rinks unsafe for skating.

  • We receive a snowfall of more than two inches. This could delay cleaning the rinks and opening the building.
