Strathcona County Outdoor Rinks

Updates & Notices

March 19, 2018

All outdoor rinks are CLOSED for the season.

Toboggan hills at Broadmoor Lake and Woodbridge Lake are CLOSED.

There are many opportunities to skate indoors. Check out the drop-in calendar!

For updates on weekends, please call 780-467-5800.

Strathcona County does not monitor the thickness of ice for skating on any stormwater pond or natural bodies of water, and therefore, ice conditions are unknown. Stay safe and keep off the ice. Stormwater ponds have an inlet and outlet pipe with water flowing much of the year. This can make ice weak and unstable.

During the winter months, outdoor rinks can be a great activity to explore with friends and family. Please keep in mind that outdoor rinks are not open when temperatures are warmer than 5°C or below -20°C. For the most up-to-date information, you can sign up for our outdoor rink status newsletter .
