DISCLAIMER: Do not skate on city stormwater ponds
Castle Downs Park
11510 153 Avenue
With a rec centre and play park Castle Downs Park is a great place to spend an indoor/outdoor wintery afternoon.
City Hall Outdoor Ice
1 Sir Winston Churchill Square
Looking for a romantic or family skate followed by a nice downtown meal? Soft-lit City Hall Plaza is one of the city’s most magical places at night, and you can skate all over it.
Jackie Parker Park
Right next to Mill Woods Golf Course, you can pretend to be a pro-golfer staying in hockey shape while looking longingly at the out-of-season greens, and then take your dog around the off-leash dog park.
The Meadows Outdoor Leisure Ice
2704 17 Street
With a gym, hot tub and even library inside, The Meadows is one of the city’s most full-service recreation centres — but you’ll wanna spend time skating on the outdoor rink, first.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park
13221 Buena Vista Road
Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park’s new skating rink sits low along the North Saskatchewan River, providing some of the city’s prettiest winter views as you skate on by.
Don’t forget about these iceways available around the city.
