Castlegar community ice rinks open today

The City's outdoor community ice skating and hockey rinks will be opening for the season by 3 pm on Friday, Dec. 28.

These rinks are open from 7a.m. to 10 p.m. everyday depending on the weather. They normally remain open until late January or early February as long as the temperatures stay at freezing or below. The rinks are lit up during the evening until 10pm.

Two rinks are available, one for skating that is approximately 50ft x 90ft and the second rink is used for hockey and is approximately 65ft x 95ft in size.

The rinks are free to use and are flooded as needed during low usage hours.

Ice conditions change with the weather and rinks may close if conditions deteriorate or maintenance is required.

The rinks are located at the back side of Kinnaird Park, 2501 14 Ave.

If the City needs to close the rinks notification will be updated on our website and facebook page.  For more information please contact the City's Civic Works department at 250-365-5979.
