Rink is Open as at Dec 1!
We are pleased to provide a skating rink during the winter months (Late November to early March) located in the playing fields along Coach Hill Road. This is the site of the future Outdoor Activity Hub which includes a permanent rink, hard surface court, community gardens and playground. Come enjoy the outdoor rink in our community, from dawn until dusk daily (until the warm weather is here to stay!). Our pleasure skating rink is for the use of all residents, free of charge. You can support the rink and other initiatives by purchasing a community association membership for just $20 per year!
A few things to note:
Please enter and exit rink at the opening near the benches
Take care when skating near the edges where the ice can be bumpier.
The area around the perimeter of the rink is icy and slippery, so be aware when walking around the rink.
Helmets are recommended for all ages for safety.
There are no garbage cans at the site, so please take your rubbish and empties with you when you go.
The shovels on site are to help you clear the ice of snow and shavings as needed. Please leave them next to the bench after use.
Most of all, HAVE FUN!
The outdoor rink was made possible by a team of volunteers. If you'd like to help out with the rink crew email email@example.com.
A Note about the rink at 60 Patterson Boulevard (the former Community Hockey Rink)
We get many emails and questions about the rink behind the old community centre building on Patterson Boulevard.
In 2004 following declining membership, building use and lack of volunteers, the Community Association made the difficult decision to release the lease on the property back to the City of Calgary. It is currently leased by the Alberta Badminton Association who do not maintain an the ice rink. This space is not available for use by the community as a skating/hockey rink.
For just $20 per year, the cost of a community membership, you can help build a new community rink, and your ongoing annual support will ensure we can maintain the rink for years to come. Join now, or renew your membership!
