Parks and Recreation staff would appreciate the public staying off outdoor rinks when they are posted closed during the ice-building period.

Volunteer-supported Outdoor Ice Rink Policy

Would you like to have an outdoor ice rink in your community? If so, read the Volunteer Supported Outdoor Ice Rink Policy to learn how.  The Town of Orangeville Volunteer Supported Outdoor Ice Rink Policy was developed in response to community demand to permit volunteers to operate outdoor ice rinks. The guidelines and application package has been established to assist an approved volunteer group to build and maintain an outdoor ice rink on Town land.
