The Ice is Coming!


I wish I had a river I could skate away on. Or,at least a rectangular piece of ice in the park that my friends and I could use to play hockey . Unfortunately due to unseasonably warm temperatures, the city is behind on the rink flooding schedules. Normally my friends and I would be several weeks into our Friday night hockey league (its not much of a league, its more just a bunch of guys with sticks and skates who really aren’t that great at using them). However, today I recieved good news. The Lakeview rink will open for buisness soon! Yay!

According to Billie-Jo, our wonderful special programs coordinator, the Lakeview rinks will officially be ready for skating Monday. The skate shack will open around this time as well. Billie-Jo has asked that I give some helpful reminders regarding the rink and ice shack. They are as follows:

  • The Ice Shack Will be Supervised.
  • The hours of operation for the ice shack typically will be: 
Weekdays, 6pm till 9pm and Saturdays and Sundays, 2 till 5 pm and then 7 till 9 pm. 
  • The ice shack will not open if the weather is colder than -25 degrees or warmer than +5 degrees. 
Lace up your skates and get out there!
