Outdoor rinks

Did you know that Strathcona County offers a wide variety of outdoor skating options? Enjoy boarded rinks, snow-banked rinks and skating pathways all season long! Outdoor rinks open in early December (weather dependent).

Updates and notices

All outdoor rinks are CLOSED for the season. To ensure the well-being of our residents, guests, and staff, all Strathcona County indoor recreation and culture facilities are CLOSED and programs are CANCELLED until June 15, 2020 (or until further notice).

This proactive measure supports Alberta Health’s priority to limit larger social gatherings in our community. Learn more about what Strathcona County is doing to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Strathcona County does not monitor the ice thickness of any stormwater ponds or natural bodies of water. Therefore, ice conditions are unknown and unpredictable. Stay safe: keep off the ice.

During the winter months, skating on outdoor rinks is 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.
