Outdoor Skating in Fisher Heights

Attention: the 2023 season is now open

After a slow start, the winter has finally somewhat settled in. Our ice makers have been working hard to build the ice and we are happy to let you know the rink and hte puddle rink are both open. Get ready for some frosty temperatures early February!

Puddle rink

We have built a puddle rink for the little ones on the basketball court. This one is flatter and has a hard base and has low boards. The previous place had a slope and never really worked as well, so we hope this one will work better. NO hockey sticks, pucks or nets allowed on this ice surface at any time.

We are aiming to have the lights on the rink on from 5:30 pm until 10:30 pm

Important to know for 2023

— rinks are supervised certain hours of the day and the building is closed — but there is access to washrooms

— there is a bench provided instead where yo uca nput on your skates

— the puddle rink is much improved, relocated onto the basketball court and bordered by a wood frame.

— after large  snowfalls, the rinks will be cleared by the ice maker. After small snowfalls, there are shovels provided for users to clear the ice themselves. (Not sure if they will be out this winter)

— the ice maker will check the ice once a day to monitor its condition. If there are any questions, e-mail the association at info.fhaca@gmail.com.

About the rinks

Every winter, a group of dedicated community members build, maintain, and operate a boarded skating rink (and a small ‘puddle rink’ for beginning skaters) on the lawn behind the Fisher Heights Community Place at 31 Sutton Place. 

Ice time is scheduled to ensure that both hockey players and free skaters have a chance to enjoy the rink.  Bathrooms are open in the community centre during the posted hours above.
