* The operation of the rinks is dependent on weather and safety conditions, so rinks may be closed without advance notice. Regular maintenance on rinks generally takes place between 7 am and 10 am, so skating may be temporarily interrupted during those times.

Due to the Provincial Health Officer's requirements, there will be changes to the operation of these public rinks this season:

  • Changing rooms and warming rooms at Parson and Farrell's Field will be closed;
  • No campfires are permitted;
  • Each rink is limited to 40 skaters on the ice at one time;
  • There is to be no sharing of equipment such as hockey sticks or skate aids;
  • Social distancing from others not within your own household should be maintained;
  • Before use, stop and do a self-check. If you are experiencing symptoms such as cough, fever, or difficulty breathing, you are not permitted to use the facility;
  • Organized adult groups or events will not be permitted as per the Provincial Health Officer's order regarding events and gatherings.

The CSRD asks patrons to respect the rules in order that these public amenities can be used and enjoyed this winter season.

Information on rink operations will also be available on the CSRD's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds.
