outdoor rink closed

The Town continues to maintain and construct several outdoor ice rinks. Daily updates are provided on the Town’s website informing the public of which outdoor ice rinks are open. When a rink is closed, the public is asked to stay off the ice. For those that are open, please enjoy this winter activity and be sure to follow protocols. Keep in mind that rink operations are weather dependent and are also affected by snow accumulation and dependent upon people following the municipal regulations and COVID-19 protocols. 

The Town is planning seven outdoor rinks this winter. The locations that are operational (weather dependent daily) are Idyllwilde Park, Alder Recreation Centre, Princess of Wales Park, Lions’ Sports Park, Tony Rose Memorial Sports Centre, and Kin Family Park.  Rebecca Hills Park is currently under construction.   

When the rinks are open for public use, participation restrictions will be in effect during the pandemic. In consultation with Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health and considering participation protocols, capacities for each rink are as follows:

Alder outdoor rink – 5

Kin Family Park outdoor rink – 5

Rebecca Hills Park outdoor rink– 5 (currently under construction)

Princess of Wales outdoor rink - 15

Tony Rose outdoor rink – 15 (currently under construction)

Idyllwilde Park outdoor rink - 20

Lions Sports Park outdoor rink – 25

Please be sure to maintain social distancing of two metres from other participants using the rink (excluding members of the same household).  Team sports or other sports or games where people come into close contact with each other are not permitted.  Rinks are unsupervised.  Please use responsibly.
